Smoke from Fires in Bolivia - September 21st, 2010

Smoke from fires in Bolivia continues  to hang over the land east of the Andes Mountains in large areas of South America. This image focuses on the area by the border of Peru and Ecuador.

The veil of smoke gives the usually dark green Amazon Rainforest a lighter greyish green color. To the north, the skies over the rainforest are dotted with clouds. Some cloudless parts appear as thick greenish lines, however, following the path of rivers.
