Paragliding Above Extreme Desert Sands

Watch more with these video collections:

Using his paraglider, photographer George Steinmetz flies above some of the most diverse and extreme deserts in the world… sand dunes, volcanic peaks, brightly colored hot springs, ancient cities, unusual farms, herds of wild animals… pattern upon amazing pattern… from Iran’s Lut Desert, Rub’ al Khali, and the Sahara in Chad, Algeria, and Mauritania, to China’s Badain Jaran and Peru’s Pacific Coast dunes, and other deserts around the world.

Look at them all online or find them in his book, Desert Air, after watching this video from National Geographic.
