The sight of Luiz Fernando Candeia dangling his fiancée Marcelle Rangel da Cunha over a cliff is enough to make anyone’s stomach drop.
But despite her precarious position, Marcelle can’t wipe the grin off her face – so what gives?
In the latest viral picture doing the rounds, Luiz and Marcelle’s daredevil stunt has the world fixated – especially when it comes to the sinister drop she’s happily hovering over.
But it turns out everything is not what it seems.
Despite looking like she’s floating in mid-air with Luiz barely exerting any effort to hold her up, the 21-year-old student’s mid-air adventures are actually a lot safer than what they appear.
The couple are the latest travellers to snap themselves at notorious Brazilian hot spot the Pedra del Telegrafo.
While it appears that a rock juts out over a dangerous 350 metre drop, there’s actually another plateau beneath it protecting photo-takers from taking the plunge should they fall.
"My fiancé thinks a lot like me and loves adventure and adrenaline. She really wanted to try it,” explains Luiz.
"I've done it before, but you need to practice a lot to make it work.
“You achieve the picture through a specific camera angle that creates an optical illusion.
"When you position the camera at the correct angle the rock looks like an abyss."
