This is the amazing duo called ‘ On the roofs’ by Vitaliy Raskalov & Vadim Makhorov. They explore the world in a way that is unfathomable to most: they scale its tallest buildings, bridges, and industrial structures with no safety equipment, and there, up high, they take some spectacular photographs. At their core, their photos capture not only the stunning beauty of the world’s most famous cities from unique angles and viewpoints but also the very moment of scaling the summit, transmitting the accompanying wide range of emotions.

There is a sense of elation of achieving a goal, the happiness of pushing beyond personal limits and fears as well as savoring the deadly danger. The euphoric rush is probably just like a drug — every next rooftop also brings about a new daring plan to conquer yet another one. Chances are, they find it hard to live in between the ascents.

"On the Roofs" traveled to Shenzhen, China and scaled the 2,165 foot Ping An International Finance Centre to capture these jaw-dropping images. The skyscraper, which is currently under-construction, is expected to be the 4th world’s tallest building and second tallest in China!

Their daredevil videos get dozens of millions of views, while their extreme photographs, conveying the death-defying delight of successful ascension, are snapped up by prominent international publishers. These amazing guys are so brave and adventurous! Check out their incredible video and be amazed!
