Smoke from Fires in Bolivia - August 26th, 2010

The skies over huge expanses of land in South America continue to be choked by smoke from fires blazing in Bolivia. The thumbnail image focuses on the smoke over Bolivia, east of the Salar de Uyuni, the large white salt flat at the lower left edge), and the Andes Mountains.

Upon opening the full image, the cloud of smoke can be seen reaching from ManĂ¡us, Brazil, in the North, to near the salt flats of the Salinas Grandes and the green saline lake called Mar Chiquita, in Argentina, in the South.
