|The Anasazi were native Americans who built a remarkable number of structures in the four corners area and abandoned them for unknown reasons about AD 1300. This is Hovenweep Castle, a major Anasazi structure in extreme southeastern Utah. Photo © H.S. McCann.|
Scott uses an 11-foot "Grand Delta" from "Into The Wind." The KAP rig hangs about 50 feet (15 m) below the kite on a Picavet suspension. Camera tilt and pan are adjusted manually on the ground; the shutter is tripped by an automatic timer every 27 seconds. It was very gusty at Hovenweep and many of the images were blurred by camera motion, but he obtained a couple of excellent pictures.
