If you are afraid of heights, then this series by American photographer Dennis Maitland might make you dizzy, as these photos are shot from quiet a long distance from stability. This daring artist enjoys climbing up to rooftops, dangling his feet off the edge, and capturing the moment.

For many people this project might appear as risky, but for Maitland the experience and result making all worth it. "I like to push the limits of myself and I have a good time doing it... for myself," he said. The passion exuded by the photographer is visible in the quality and interesting angles of the shots. From old buildings to elevators shafts, he climbs all sort of structures, always including his feet in the frame.

The adventurous series by Dennis Maitland shows how the artist's need to get an adrenaline rush can turn into an extreme way to capture the world.
