Walking the high wire while battling the wind

Samit Ijon walks on a 15-meter long steel rope which is suspended 30 meters above the ground by two hot air balloons in Shaoyang, Central China's Hunan province, August 7, 2011. Ijon is the seventh descendant of the Xinjiang Darwaz, an acrobatics show of high wire walking. He successfully finished the 30-meter high walk. But his attempt to walk 100 meters above the ground was thwarted by the strong winds that caused him to lose balance. [Photo/CFP]
