Recorded with Rode NT1A microphones and a Sound Devices 702 digital recorder. This recording was edited to lift the voices of the distant subjects above the significant artificial noise from the recording equipment.

The photo below, taken not far from the recording location around 4:00 p.m. the same day, gives a general idea of the setting.
