Every year, Red Bull pulls together the most astonishing adventure and action-sports photos for its renowned Illume contest. The award-winning images, taken in exotic locales around the world, are guaranteed to make the hair on your neck stand up.
You probably won't want to try these stunts anytime soon. But you'll definitely be impressed by what you see.
