Utah Canyonlands

These classic American icons made perfect subjects for the extended pan and tilt capability of the heligimbal camera system. Capturing them in splendid isolation, however, was not so easy. Dawn and dusk, when long shadows and clear air present the best filming conditions, are also peak times for climbers to swarm up and down the vertiginous spires before the day's heat sets in.
