7 of the Most Daring Photos Ever Taken

Daring means you will need to risk your life in most cases. And that is exactly what these people have done just to let us know what it is like. These are 7 of the most daring pictures taken by extraordinary people.

1. Storm chaser George Kourounis took a selfie on top of Ambrym’s active volcano Marum, Vanuatu


2. Artur Korneyev with The Elephant’s Foot, Chernobyl. The photo was taken with reflection technique.The “Elephant’s Foot” is a solid mass made of melted nuclear fuel mixed with lots and lots of concrete, sand, and core sealing material that the fuel had melted through.


3. Famed war photographer Robert Capa went ashore with the first wave of troops at Omaha Beach, taking 106 photos in the first two hours while under extremely heavy fire. Some of the most iconic images from the D-Day WWII landing.


4. Benjamin Innes was held hostage along with 56 passengers on EgyptAir MS181 flight by Seif El Din Mustafa. Innes is believed to have approached Mustafa while being held hostage on the tarmac to have a picture together and sent the photo to one of his flatmates as well as other friends.


5. Alexander Remnev is a nineteen-years-old guy from Moscow. He has been climbing on rooftops since the tender age of 14. The photographer traveled to Hong Kong, Paris, Barcelona, and Dubai… just to find tall buildings and make his way up to the roofs of these skyscrapers.


6. This absolutely scary photo of a lion taken by Atif Saeed will make it to the list. The photographer took this photo seconds before it charged towards him. Luckily he made it alive.


7. In 1985 a fellow by the name of Mordechai Vanunu took some pictures where he worked. He was not allowed to do so as he worked at an Israeli nuclear facility but he claimed that the photos were evidence that Israel was developing nuclear weapons. He released the photos to the British press in 1986 and naturally the Israeli government figured out who had taken the photos, took him back to Israel from Italy and sentenced him to 18 years in prison, 11 of them were spent in solitary confinement.
