Today’s Guardian has the most awesome series of photos, of a group of adventurous folks doing stunts on Norway’s Trolltunga (Troll’s Tongue), which projects over an impressive 2,500 foot drop.
This is my favorite of the bunch in terms of eye-widening stunts, but Photo #3 is also highly cool (and the clouds and mist make it a fantastic shot for the artistry).
These remind me of that classic old photo of the long-skirted ladies dancing on Overhanging Rock at Glacier Point, Yosemite National Park. A quick search turns it up on a National Park Service page with the following caption:
“Kitty Tatch and Katherine Hazelston, waitresses at Yosemite National Park hotels, dance on Overhanging Rock at Glacier Point in 1900. These pictures were later made into postcards, autographed and sold for years.” (Photo by George Fiske.)
Besides the fact that they’re dancing several thousand feet above a sheer drop, I’m also impressed by the height of those kicks in what looks like a can-can.
