The stunning scene was captured by Polish photographer Adam Kokot in February, who was taking pictures of Polish climbers around the Spanish village of Margalef, Catalonia.

The 36-year-old said: “Margalef is one of the best climbing spots, and the best Polish climbers were spending the winter there.

“I had to wait for five hours for the perfect light to shoot these images.

“I was able to get a great picture of Adam climbing a rock pillar in the Cabernet sector, and performing an unusual human flag pole.

“It was a great experience to capture it in in the light. After waiting five hours for the light, it paid off in 10 minutes.”
