Mexico - May 16th, 2012

Fires have been burning by the western coast of Mexico, near the mountains of the Sierra Madre Occidental, over the last week (click here for images captured earlier this month). Here, plumes of smoke from the fires can be observed just west of an area of cloud-cover. There does not appear to be much wind, or winds blowing constantly in the same direction, as the plumes of smoke are remaining confined near the source of the blazes.
