These are the incredible images which capture the breathtaking views of two paragliders as they hit new heights - by setting a whopping 204 mile flight record.
Flying friends Jon Hunt and Nick Greece sailed at speeds of up to 40mph and more than 18,000ft high for seven hours over some of the most remote terrain in America.
Taking in stunning sights such as the Red Desert and numerous mountain ranges across Wyoming, USA, they had to carry everything from oxygen to food and flight computers.
The thrill-seekers needed to carefully manoeuvre the route to avoid landing in remote areas home to dangerous grizzly bears or even a long two day hike from the civilisation.
But 204.6 miles later Jon and keen aerial photographer Nick landed with the new North American paragliding foot launch record to their names.
Nick explained: "Time is surreal when you are up there for so long and while fatigue definitely sets in it is almost unconsciousness.
"At times it was snowing on me - my hydration system froze so it was below freezing.
"But it was all worth it for the amazing experience and record."
The pair broke the previous record of 199 miles which was only set three days earlier.
Nick vowed to beat his own record next year by flying 250 miles in the spring in Owens Valley, California.
The record-breakers took off in Wilson, Wyoming, and flew for seven hours passing the Teton Range, the Gros Ventre Range, and the Wind River Range to finish near Rawlins, Wyoming.
Nick added: "The flight was a culmination of years of flying in the Jackson Hole area. Jon, who has been flying paragliders in that area for over 20 years, and I looked at the forecast the morning of the flight and thought it looked decent.
"It wasn't until a hour in that I realised that this was the day I had been waiting five years for - like big wave surfing, paragliders pushing the distance envelope are always searching for the perfect swell.
"The bumps that you hit in an aeroplane, bumps that people gasp, they are actually the huge air waves we are trying to ride and spiral to the cloud on.
"We surf these columns of air going as fast as 2,000 feet per minute. We flew an amazing cloudstreet down the whole length of the Wind River mountain range, which is one of the most remote ranges in the US
"It can be very challenging to shoot while managing a canopy in strong conditions. After a flight I chuckle sometimes when reviewing photos because I see frames where I had to literally drop the camera in my lap to grab control of the wing.
"Shooting from an platform that is also moving at between 20 to 40mph and up and down sporadically creates a unique experience - but I love it."
