Video of the Day – Cloud surfing over Australia

If you’ve taken a ride in a commercial airplane and longed to get even closer to the clouds, then microlight aviation may be the hobby you’ve been dreaming of. In this gorgeous Video of the Day, photographer Sascha Unger was able to capture some rare cloud formations nearly 10,000 feet above Western Australia’s well-reputed Ningaloo Reef.

With the help of a friend that runs a microlight flight school, Unger rode in the back of an Australian-made two person “trike” with an open cockpit and a wing that resembles a hang glider. Shooting with a Canon 5D Mark II, he was able to share what it feels like to cut through cloud formations and get a rare, crisp view of Australia’s largest fringing reef.
