My Atacama in Thermik

My Atacama in Thermik - Paragliding over the Atacama desert, Chile

The largest paragliding magazine on the planet – Thermik – features a portfolio of my photographs showing the beauty of flying over the Atacama desert in Chile. “Thermals, soaring, and record in Northern Chile – The desert wind”, photographs by Jarek Wieczorek, text by Tim Mayer. Highly recommended. If you haven’t been to Iquique yet this may just convince you to plan your next paragliding destination. You can buy the magazine in electronic format here or in print here.

Volcano Tuzgle – The warm-up

Volcano Tuzgle - The warm-up - Summiting Volcano Tuzgle 5530m (18,140ft), Puna de Atacama, The Andes, Argentina.

160 times per minute – that is my hart, 80 times per minute – that is my lungs. A life more intense at 5500m (18,000ft).
