Australia - April 28th, 2012

A fire in northern Western Australia releases a plume of smoke towards the northwest, in the direction of King Sound. King Sound is a large gulf in northern Western Australia. It is about 120 km long, and averages about 50 km in width.┬áIt expands from the mouth of the Fitzroy River, one of Australia’s largest watercourses, and opens to the Indian Ocean. Here, the sound appears tan from sediments from the Fitzroy.
