Smoke from Fires in Bolivia - September 19th, 2010

The smoke created by fires burning in Bolivia appears quite thick in this image focusing on Bolivia and Peru, making it difficult to observe the lush green of the Amazon Rainforest.

However, Lake Titicaca, on the Peru-Bolivia border in the bottom right quadrant, can be observed quite clearly due to the lack of smoke south of the Andes Mountains.
