It takes a certain kind of person to clamber out onto the gargoyles of New York's iconic Chrysler Building, 61 floors above the teeming Manhattan streets.

One such person is UK-based photographer and adventure traveller Lucinda Grange.

The 25-year-old snapper, based in Hartlepool, has travelled the world for her art, and specialises in scaling tall structures to take images from above.

Other climbs in her extreme collection include the Manhattan Bridge, The Forth Road Bridge, Notre Dame, the Great Pyramid of Giza and the Angel of the North.

Bravo to her, we say - don't think you'd catch us hanging out 60 floors up.
