These are incredible pictures of Hong Kong, but come with a ‘don’t try this at home’ warning – because the photographer risked his life to take them.

Tamás Rizsavi, a Hungarian train driver, travelled to the city earlier this year with the sole purpose of capturing images of the urban landscape from the highest buildings he could find.

His series of photos show jaw-dropping views snapped after he climbed unaided up five of the city’s skyscrapers, some of which were 50 storeys tall.

But despite his risky approach to photography, Tamás, who has 112,000 fans on Facebook, says he never gets afraid. He told MailOnline Travel: ‘I went on top of at least five tall buildings in Hong Kong. When I was climbing, I was always in a hurry so I didn’t really pay attention to the height, but there were buildings that were surely above 50 storeys.

‘This is all about passion, adrenaline, and the love of photography. For me this is a holiday activity, just like fishing is for some people.’
