Speedlites, a drone and a 1DX II on adventure: Going to great lengths to get a unique shot

Australian adventure photographer Krystle Wright is willing to go to great lengths to capture a unique image. She approached Canon Australia to work together on a project that she had been passionate about for a long time: Photographing kayakers going over a large waterfall... at night.
This is a very difficult scenario, but Wright was well-armed with a Canon 1DX Mark II. To help with getting the desired lighting, Krystle attached two Canon Speedlites to a custom-built drone.
Not only is the video below a great showcase of the 1DX II's capabilities, but it gives a neat glimpse behind the scenes of a photographer who sees a challenge not as a roadblock but rather an opportunity to make distinct imagery. To capture the kayakers going over the precipice, Wright rigged herself to a rope that she had attached to a nearby tree. That's dedication!
