Photo of the day: the view from the top of a London crane

Posted at 4:30 pm, October 22, 2014 in Photos of London

Don’t look down!

This stunning vertiginous image was submitted to Time Out’s Flickr page by photographer ‘Munk-e’ – it’s a self portrait, taken on the cab of a crane with a camera on a timer. ‘I’d rather not give the location,’ Munk-e told us via email. ‘I don’t want everyone thinking it’s a good idea and going and attempting it themselves. Part of getting up here required me to walk along a thin beam from a building out onto the crane, 15 storeys off the ground,’ although Munk-e later added ‘for the most part it’s really safe.’

Check out more photos by Munk-e at facebook.com/MonkeyUE.
