The great fall of China: Russian daredevils take selfies from the top of some of Hong Kong’s tallest skyscrapers
These breath-taking images taken from the top of skyscrapers are wrong on so many levels.
Captured using a specially adapted selfie stick, the sweat inducing images show the lengths some people will go to for the most extreme self portrait.
Pictured at heights over 360 metres in the air, the nerve shredding photographs show the group of photographers dangling by one hand and even tip-toeing across tiny ledges.
Seemingly unfazed by the dazzling heights, the barmy bunch ventured around the city of Hong Kong in search of any building that caught their eye.
Despite the fact that one slip would result in the certain death, the fearless friends were determined to capture the sprawling urban landscape as never seen before.
Although strict security measures are in place in most of the buildings, the crazy climbers managed to evade capture by simply giving the guards a taster of their stunning images.
Taken by Russian photographer, Alexander Remnov, 19, the intrepid teenager has now added the towering harbour to a list of international cities that he has already had the pleasure of climbing.
Alexander said: “Our aim is to travel to different cities around the world and see them from a different point of view.
“Whether that is the roofs of buildings or the highest points of skyscrapers, we want to show the city in a whole new way.
“Together with my three friends from Moscow, we were able get high, really high.
“We didn’t have any special buildings in mind before hand, we just walked through the streets and tried to climb any buildings we liked the look of.
“There was one dangerous moment when we tried to get the top of The Centre tower, it became to crowded at the top and there wasn’t enough room for three of us so we decided to go back down.
“We were lucky not to meet any police, but we did have some discussions with guards.
“Once we explained our mission to them and then showed them our cameras, they simply smiled and let us free.
“Hong Kong is one of the best places I have visited but I think I would need more than a month to visit all the best view points.
“We don’t know what city we will visit next but we’re certain it’s going to be a city with skyscrapers!”
