Tourists are risking life and limb for the holiday photo album - by posing a rock wedged between two cliffs 1,000 metres up.

The Kjeragbolten boulder in Norway is a top attraction for daring hikers, like photographer Gard Karlsen, 41, who took pictures of himself and his brother, Jone Schreuder, on the worryingly-wedged rock.

There is no evidence that the boulder is about to drop, but, as Gard points out, losing your footing is a scary thought.

He told the Daily Mail: "I couldn't help but feel nervous when I was on the rock because at 1,000 metres up the wind can change at any second."

Norwegians must have nerves of steel... Norway's Pulpit Rock is also one of the world's scariest attractions.
