Skywalking in Russia: Photographing High Points

What is there to do in Russia for fun? There is the drinking of good vodka (or bad if you live in Siberia), clubbing all night in Moscow or “Skywalking.” Yes, it’s not something involving lightsabers or dancing funky around cars, but rather climbing to ultra high points and taking photographs of being there.

Vitaly Raskolov is just one the best “Skywalkers” in the growing trend. Climbing cranes and bridges over 1000 feet tall with no safety equipment, Vitaly’s photographs are mind boggling. The fact that he is still alive after all the positions he has taken on these high points is amazing. Below are some photographs of his escapades on the Russky Island Bridge
