Fires on Cape York Peninsula, Australia

April 2, 2013
More than a dozen fires were burning across northern Australia’s Cape York Peninsula on October 4, 2003. Spotty clouds mix with smoke over the region, while on the ground, the fires’ growth can be tracked by the large, dark brown burn scars they are leaving behind.
