Fires continue to blaze along the coast of Queensland (click here for previous article) and New South Wales, Australia. These fires can be seen in the main image as they release smoke over the ocean.

The first two close-ups focus on plumes of smoke from blazes in New South Wales trailing out over the ocean. These fires appear to be in wooded areas further inland, northeast of Newcastle and northwest of Coffs Harbour (near the New South Wales-Queenland border).

The final close-up shows various fires along the coast of Queensland, from Rockhampton (left) to Fraser Island (right). The blazes are being fueled by high temperatures and strong winds.
