I like this a lot! One thing confuses me though; how did you take the picture? I am assuming that the helicopter was in flight when you took the image - were there two of them and you photographed one from the other? Just curious thats all!

No the chopper was parked on a ledge (quite a generous area) half way down one side of the Grand Canyon wall. It's picnic spot rented from the local American Indians by Maverick Helicopters in Las Vegas. There were 7 helicopters parked there on this trip :)
