India – November 19th, 2012

 A cloud of smoke from fires in northern India (click here for previous images) creeps eastward along the foot of the Himalayas towards Bangladesh. The high mountains prevent it from blowing northward across Nepal, into Tibet, China. Visible in the upper half of the image is the Tibetan Lakes Region, a large area of hundreds of lakes dotted across the Tibetan Plateau.
