West Africa – December 21st, 2012

Smoke, perhaps mixed with dust from the Bodélé Depression, hangs in the air over the West African nations of Nigeria, Benin, Togo, Ghana and Côte d’Ivoire (from right to left). Partially visible through the haze is Lake Volta (near center), on the Volta River in Ghana and Kainji Lake (near right edge), a reservoir on the Niger River in Nigeria.
