Upside down climbers cling onto rock edge of gorgeous Greek Island
These frightening photos of daring rock climbers pushing their grip to the limit have the most stunning coastal backdrop.
Freelance filmmaker and photographer, Kieran Duncan, 26 years old, living in Dundee, Scotland captured the action at the annual Kalymnos Climbing Festival.
Kieran said: “It was a phenomenal adventure. Kalymnos has so much to offer, whether you climb or not.
“It’s a truly unique and spectacular place, and I will definitely be returning there for many years to come.
“I was invited to film and photograph the climbing festival on Kalymnos. It was my job to produce media content which would showcase the world class sport climbing available on the island.
“Aside from the phenomenal climbing, the island has a lot to offer in terms of culture, food, scenery, and other adventure activities – which I am also keen to include the finished film.
“One of my first personal portfolio projects was a short film of my climbing holiday to Kalymnos in 2015, and the film was highly successful within the climbing community.
“The organisers of the annual festival found the film online and kindly invited me to create a similarly styled edit of the festival.
“I’m currently working on the edit at the moment, and I’m hoping to release it within the coming weeks.
“Adventures around Kalymnos. With everything from Deep Water Soloing climbing above water without ropes to spectacular sunset vistas.
“There are a number of photographs of Urko Carmona Barandiaran, a Spanish climber who can climb exceptionally hard despite only having one leg.
“There are also some images of Urko guiding his friend, Simone Salvagnin. Simone is blind, and probably climbs harder than I do!”
