Captions: In the desert, South-East Iran

My host walks away over 56 degree Celsius sand in the Kaluts desert, Iran

As soon as we stepped outside of the car, we were blasted with intense heat. This was the Kaluts desert (Dasht-e Luts) in South-East Iran, heading for the Afghanistan/Pakistan border. It was one of the most extreme places I’ve ever visited. This feeling was exacerbated by the fact that my hosts were high as kites on opium.
