Canada – June 28th, 2013

Several large fires burning in the Canadian province of Quebec, east of James Bay, the southernmost reaches of the Hudson Bay, release thick white smoke. The plumes of smoke from the fires nearest the bay blow westward, while those further east blow to the northwest. The smoke from those clustered near the shores of the bay release thick smoke that fans out as it cross the shoreline, obscuring the rich brown sediments coloring the waters below.
