Australia – August 31st, 2012

The plumes of smoke from three fires burning on the Dampier Peninsula, in Western Australia, join together before blowing west-northwestward over the Indian Ocean. The fires are located near the shores of King Sound. Sediments from rivers such as the Fitzroy pour through the sound and out into the ocean, creating interesting green patterns in the water as they diffuse.
