This amazing photographer named as George Steinmetz has taken such stunning pictures of world's different deserts from up to 6,000 feet above.

This National Geographic photographer is a great nature's lover. He flies in his flying lawn chair attached to a motorized paraglider and captures images from high above the ground.

In his interview to New York Times, he said:

'It’s beautiful because it’s like the earth with its skin stripped away — without vegetation,'

'It’s just laid bare. You can see rocks, camel tracks, the courses of ancient rivers and remnants of civilizations.'

Mr Steinmetz's latest publication of Desert Air captures everywhere from China's Great Gobi Desert to the Sahara in northern Africa to Death Valley in California.

The photographer has the lightest and slowest motorized flying machine in the world which enables him to get close to the ground and take the images.

'The first time you fly in one of these things, the view is just staggering because it’s like you’re in a lawn chair and there’s just nothing between you and eternity,'
