This Awesome Photographer Paraglides to Take Extreme Desert Pictures

If you ever wondered how National Geographic manages to take those gorgeous shots of the desert and overhead pictures of animals, the answer: paragliding. Coasting through the nothingness of nature is almost more beautiful than the pictures itself.

Photographer George Steinmetz has flown in these motorized paragliders over a dozen times and has seen nearly every extreme desert. What an awesome job. [National Geographic via Neatorama]
