The Archetizer website has this incredible gallery of photos taken from the peak of the great pyramid of Giza. The photos were taken by a group of Russian photographers who illegaly climbed the structure in the dead of night.

How’d they do it? Seems like the group waited several hours after closing time, hiding from guards until they saw their chance. As one of the photographers would later point out, climbing the Pyramids is a punishable crime and can carry sentences of up to three years.
