USA – October 29th, 2012

Fires in southern Louisiana and eastern Texas, USA, release plumes of smoke that blow southward towards the Gulf of Mexico. While only one fire, with a thick plume of white smoke, stands out in the thumnail image, many fires can be seen near the coast upon opening the full image. Also of note near the shoreline are the dark brown sediments spilling out of the mouth of the Mississippi River.
