Sun Glint Turns Amazon Rainforest Rivers and Lake Titicaca a Silver Color12S 69.6W
After months of hazy skies due to smoke from forest fires in Bolivia, the green vegetation of the Amazon Rainforest in Peru and Brazil can be seen. Rivers running through the rainforest on the right side appear silvery in color due to sun glint.
Also silver in color from the reflection of the sun’s rays is Lake Titicaca, on the Peru-Bolivia border just below the Andes Mountains in the lower right quadrant. Upon opening the full image, the white salt flats of the Salar de Uyuni can also be seen further south, along the right edge.
