Australia - September 20th, 2011

Several fires, aligned almost in a row, can be seen in the upper half of this image of central Australia. The plumes of smoke from the fires have a fan-shape, due to changes in wind direction.

Visible on the right side of the image are rivers and creeks in Channel Country, flowing southwards into the ephemeral Lake Eyre, near the bottom edge.
