This 23 year old will stop at nothing for the perfect snap.

If you’re afraid of heights, you might want to look away.

Because Angela Nikolau's certainly not. The Russian daredevil's love of high-altitude snaps sees her striking a pose on risky building sites and even back-flipping on the edge of skyscrapers. The talented self-taught photographer will stop at nothing for the perfect picture.

Angela, who calls herself a ‘roofer’, is always on the quest for new daring challenges that she shares with her 218 000 Instagram followers.
Her latest video shows the adrenaline junkie and a friend climbing up a terrifyingly high crane in Tianjin, China.
The 640-metre tall crane is the world’s highest construction site.
Although Angela’s dizzying pictures and love for adventure have earned her a massive following, she reminds people not to try her tricks at home.
So don’t try this by yourself.
