Wildfires are burning in several places in Queensland, Australia. The main image gives an overview of the area, including the Great Barrier Reef off the east coast. The smoke from all of the fires is blowing to the west.

The close-ups focus on the locations of various blazes. One shows several plumes of smoke blowing towards the Gulf of Carpentaria from fires near the west coast of the Cape York Peninsula.

Another shows fires and smoke further inland, at the base of the peninsula. The last depicts blazes near Lake Dalrymple, closer to the east coast and south of the peninsula.
