Mexico - April 15th, 2011

Some smoke and clouds veil the skies over the western side of the base of the Yucatan Peninsula, in Mexico. In the lower half of the full image, several individual plumes of smoke from fires can be observed.

The smoke hangs over the Términos Lagoon (or Laguna de Términos), giving it a seemingly greyish color as opposed to its usual tan or green one.
