Elk in BC, near Fearnie. Seal launch above Leap of Faith followed by middle Elk canyon all at low flows.

Yes.

Not so keen on the Rafa Ortiz being set on fire one though. It just seems a bit pointless? (A bigger fall would have been more impressive.)

Goes against the grain for me too. I thought the whole point of dropping waterfalls was that it wasn't just plopping off something and it relied on skill and control.
If so, why add 'not getting burned because some other pyrotechnitians have done their job properly' into the mix?

Totally different from the awesome illuminated boat stuff. shot at night that's pure art.

Although if some top-notch images come out of it, maybe i'll changemy tune, but looking at the vid, it wasn't set up for 'art'... more the stunt of it.
