Tourists have been slammed for risking their lives in order to take the perfect selfie at a notorious cliff face.
The Wairere Falls in New Zealand's Kaimai Ranges has become a hot spot for tourists with many standing on the edge of the 153 metre precipice to take photos.
One visitor was captured standing backwards on the edge of the rock face while he spent ten minutes taking a selfie.
Liz Quilty who was visiting the waterfall on Sunday morning photographed the man said what he was doing was 'stupidly dangerous'.
She shared the image online with one person warning just 'one gust of wind' would be enough to knock him off.
Ms Quilty said others who were at the cliff were 'not impressed' with the man and gave him 'dirty looks'.
The waterfall has no warning signs or barriers around the cliff's edge.

Craig Summers, the Department of Conservation's Acting Operations Manager said even if there were barriers put on the rocks, people would still climb over them.
'While this behaviour is beyond most people's risk threshold, it cannot be legally prohibited nor is it practical to put barriers at the top of the falls,' Mr Summers told the New Zealand Herald.
'In any event, those wishing to take images of this nature would likely climb over barriers and continue to access the top of the falls.'
There have been no serious injuries recorded from people taking photos at the waterfall.
