Canada – July 13th, 2012

Fires near the border between the provinces of Saskatchewan and Manitoba, Canada, release plumes of smoke towards the southeast. A band of smoky haze also sweeps across the image. On the left side, just north of the haze, is Lac la Ronge, a glacial lake in Saskatchewan. It is the fifth largest lake in the province. It is approximately 250 km north of Prince Albert, on the edge of the Canadian Shield.
