Smoke from Fires in Bolivia - September 10th, 2010

Although rains during the first week of September gave Bolivia a brief respite from the fires burning in the country, the  return of dry weather has also brought about a return of the wildfires.

Upon opening the full image, smoke from the fires can be seen reaching from near Manáus, Brazil (obscured by clouds but situated near the river in the upper part of the image), across Bolivia, and all the way south to near Mar Chiquita, Argentina (the green lake just below the veil of smoke).
