Paul Gunther originally shared to Landscapes & SeaScapes:
 
On my last day in Yosemite, some clouds were starting to show through the day, so I decided I'd try a new sunset spot I'd heard about that apparently had an even better view than the more touristy Glacier Point. Sentinel dome is about an hour hike from Glacier Point Road that is normally closed in the Winter season.  The night before we went to a movie down in the valley and met Ron Kauk, a local climber who mentioned Sentinal dome was one of the places they shot some footage for his movie.
 I wanted to get in as much Yosemite goodness, so I double timed it to the summit for golden hour, bounding over the granite path, like only crazed photographers and mountain climbers do ;-)    I couldn't believe this place, I arrived just as some magnificent storm clouds were catching the sun, with sun showers over half dome and panoramic snow covered peaks behind my back.    I'd found my happy place on Earth.
The next hour was like an intense cardio workout, shooting to the North, South, East & West, do a pano, do a highlight feature, shoot into the sun, turn around shoot the amazing golden light, shoot a waterfall, catch some more golden light, repeat until darkness fell.
Only about 10 minutes after sunset, everyone had wisely left as there was a light rain shower that had swept in and with no moon and cloud cover it was going to be pitch black real soon, with a climb down on slippery wet granite.
I was fully prepared with thermals, gloves, chocolate bars, water, gore-tex, trail GPS map back to the car, and maybe extra lights, oh except I forgot the pack the head lamp safely back in the car, in my epic rush to the summit!  Never mind, my trusty mobile phone had 2 super bright LEDs so I would be ok.   By them a group of hikers was heading up, although I didn't want to tell them they had just missed the most epic of sunsets.   2/3rds of the way back, my phone cut-out, so I was in near darkness!   So my last light source was now my trusty Canon DSLR!  Earlier in the week I was adjusting the LCD brightness to low to take some night shots, so now I did the opposite, I found a nice bright photo, turned up the LCD to MAX and this was a decent light panel that guided me back to the carpark.   I also forgot to turn off the driving lights in my rush, so I was guided back by my own car lights.
