Don’t look down! Nail-biting snaps of daredevils tip-toeing across dizzying highline
Don’t look down! These nail-biting pictures of daredevils tip-toeing across a dizzying highline will make your head spin.
The stomach-churning snaps show the fearless adventurers teeter across the precarious slackline, high up above the sea and a rocky cliff-face.
Adventure photographer Krystle Wright caught highline athlete Ryan Robinson on camera as he made the risky journey across the slackline in Tasmania, Australia.
Krystle, 29, from USA, said: “It takes many years to develop the skills to walk a line of this calibre – Ryan has a lot of experience.
“The coastline of Tasmania is truly unique, and draws in rock climbers and highliners from around the world – the Moai where we set up the slackline is an incredible sea stack tower, there’s nothing like this anywhere else in the world.
“Highlining definitely takes a lot of preparation and problem-solving to get the line up.
“I love the chance to be outdoors, documenting what happens in front of me – I’m always in awe of the skill and talent of the athletes I get to work with.
“I’d say highlining is certainly more zen-like than other extreme sports, which are typically fuelled by high-octane moments.
“It’s just quite an awesome moment to enjoy the hard work, and sit back and watch it unfold.”
