Cee’s FFC: Reflections and Shadows

Every week, Cee has a Fun Foto Challenge, and this time, the theme is ‘Reflections and Shadows’, so here are a few I was able to find.

On our visit to Belize in January, we saw some interesting reflections and shadows on our day trip to the Mayan ruins at Lamanai. The only way to get to this site is by river, and this pic not only has reflections, but also a well camouflaged crocodile.


Here’s a much prettier reflection of water lilies on the New River


Now for the shadows. Our long trek through the jungle was very shady and full of shadows.


In the trees were the shadowy figures of Howler monkeys.


I also foundΒ  couple of hammock pics for the theme. The first one in some welcome shade in Belize,


and this one taken at our villa at Round Hill, Jamaica. Can you think of a more pleasant way to babysitΒ  a young grandson?


I hoe you’ve enjoyed my reflections and shadows. To see more entries, just click on Cee’s badge.

  1. I love your adventures πŸ™‚ That camouflaged crocodile is one for sure! Um, grandson? Lucky you…but I would have thought passing by you were the mama!

  2. Great shots! I’ll come back to view them in January. It’s about that time every year when I long to be lying in a hammock strung up between palm trees. πŸ™‚

  3. Nice to see you in a hammock again! And those above image crocodile , it scares me that the deck enough surplus ! Be more careful Since the brick – I am afraid that you will not uncover with love maxima

  4. I think that you spend 24/7 in those hammocks Sylvia and pay a waiter to run around taking all the photos …..own up πŸ˜‰ Ralph xox πŸ˜€

  5. You’re looking pretty comfy in that last shot ‘babysitting’. Tough assignment, eh! I too am a fan of that water lily shot.

  6. To see the crocodile that close does not feel comforting but the nearby lotus is so pretty. I am wondering how did you keep an eye on your grandson when you looked so comfy under the shade πŸ™‚

  7. By the photos it looks like you’re having a hard time of it Sylvia! Must be all that baby sitting I think. Tends to wear you out!!!

  8. Nice to see you in a hammock again :D. You caught a crocodile and a gorgeous water lilly on the same trip while you were baby sitting. Impressive!!

  9. A perfect series of paradise. I hope to see Belize one day. There’s a cruise that leaves Galveston that goes to Belize. Time for some overtime shifts.best wishes from Texas!

  10. Ah…to be in a hammock today! You captured the challenge perfectly. I had a hard time finding the crocodile – good thing they are not in abundance here in Tennessee, or I might be in trouble!

  11. Love that water lily picture AD very serene .
    Glad to see you comfortable babysitting …
    and not taking any chances with kettering πŸ˜‰

      • Lol Poppy here AD …
        kettering is one of those odd assigned words that has come to mean the patterned indentation marks left on ones person by sitting on wicker chairs …or possibly by lying on hammocks … πŸ˜‰

    • Thanks for the explanation, Poppy. Can’t think why I called you Gilly. I must be denser than I thought. πŸ˜€ Yes, I wouldn’t want to have that criss-cross pattern all over my bod when I arose. It would quite spoil the effect. πŸ™‚

  12. What a wonderful entry… I actually sat staring at the one photo… that croc sure is camouflaged… what a way to babysit… oh it’s a tough life…

  13. uno dei miei sogni Γ¨ visitare il Belize….ho scritto un post su questo che prima o poi vorrΓ² pubblicare, intanto mi accontento di guardarlo riflesso nelle tue bellissime ombre ( io sono quasi-romantica ed ho scelto le ninfee πŸ™‚ )

    one of my dreams is to visit the Belize … I wrote a post about this that sooner or later I will publish, in the meantime I’m happy to see it reflected in your beautiful shadows (I am almost-romantic and I chose the water lilies:-))
    haye a good day
