This crack in the Earth was our first adventure downward into the depths of Utah's ever-changing landscape. After a short drop down an overused rope at the head of the canyon, we came upon this area that really demonstrates the hidden layers that make up our Earth. As the spring rains rush through this crevasse the tiny shelves of sand reveal themselves.

We shot several immersive images in the canyon. They can be seen here.

These 2 sites have some good info about the canyon:
Hardware- Canon 30D, Nikon 10.5mm, Nodal Ninja 3, Bogen 300N Rotator, Bogen 3021BPro Tripod, Cable Release

Software- Canon DDP Raw Converter, PTGUIPro, Photoshop CS2
