These incredible photographs show a daredevil hanging over a 10,000ft drop with nothing but his abs holding him up.

The photographs, taken in Pedra do Telegrafo, Brazil, show Luis Fernando Candela hanging from a cliff face by his FEET with spectacular views of the Pedra Branca national park in the background.

But all is not quite as it seems.

Luis, from Rio de Janeiro, was being photographed by his girlfriend on November 21 who made it look like her partner was performing a daredevil stunt on a cliff edge.

But a new video has brought a whole new light to the photographs – and shows that actually the rocky outcrop is just a metre or so from the ground.

It turns out that it’s just a combination of clever camera angles and the right lighting make the subject look as though they are about to drop off into thin air.
