The ultimate cliff hanger – a man has captured himself dangling above the clouds in the Peak District.
Mike Hutton, 47, was visiting Bamford edge in the heart of the Peak District two days ago [December 4] when he managed to climb the rock and capture the impressive moment himself.
The images show Mike dangling from the famous rock called Gargoyle Flake – 400m above the ground.
He was able to capture his brave climb by balancing the camera and tripod on the edge of the mountain – something which captured the images automatically.
Mike added: “I had an idea to capture an image of someone rock climbing above a temperature inversion for several years.
“The route in the photo was selected as it is at an altitude of approximately 400m which would ensure it to be above the clouds during a temperature inversion and it has a stunning backdrop.
“After years of waiting all the elements came together on a beautiful winters day.”
