Mexico – April 6th, 2013

Plumes of smoke from fires are scattered about the Yucatán Peninsula, particularly  near its base.  Visible on the western coast is the Términos Lagoon, green from sediments and algal growth. On the eastern coast is Chetumal Bay, on the Mexico-Belize border. Its waters appear whitish due to sun slint, which also highlights nearby rivers.
