Photos show the tiny figure of Lukas Irmler holding his arms out to keep his balance at the top of the Gordon River Dam in Tasmania, Australia.

Wearing just a bright green top, he stands out in the day and night as the concrete structure drops away from him.

The pictures were taken by German photographer Valentin Rapp.

Valentin said: “I have been a professional photographer for around four years, but I was slacklining before then, so I love doing these sorts of shoots.

“I usually walk all of the highlines too.

“It’s always very exciting for me because I know exactly what they are feeling at that moment when they are on the line.

“That also helps me to take the perfect photo. I always know what the next step is going to be.”S
