I'd love for somebody to use the "lucky imaging" technique on this particular angle. Astrophotographers use it to counteract the effects of atmospheric turbulence. It could potentially allow for very sharp pictures of Half Dome from a unique, incredible angle.

Great pictures. We took several from the Interstate 5 near Patterson last year but it was rainy so nothing that clear.

In a similar vein, the James Lick Observatory up on Mt. Hamilton had a couple great shots all the way across the valley on their twitter feed:

I grew up in San Jose and always dismissed as fantastical the idea of being able to clearly see across the Central Valley to Yosemite. Looks like I was wrong!
