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 found  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 babysit  a young grandson?


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


WordPress Photo Challenge: Lost in the details.

This week’s challenge had me looking through my photos to see what details I could find that you might find interesting, or not, as the case may be. 🙂

Looking at this photo, you’re probably more fascinated by the skipper’s tattoos, than the small details of hubby and his dive buddy, bobbing around in the water.

This crocodile is almost lost in the detail of the water and the undergrowth on the riverbank,

Around Phi Phi Island near Phuket, there are cliffs riddled with caves. Here is the Viking Cave which is right at sea level. Within the cave there are ledges which are inhabited by thousands of swallows. These birds make their nests out of their own saliva. The nests are harvested and sold to make birds nest soup, a Chinese delicacy. The cave was so named, because of  ancient drawings resembling Viking ships, which were found on the inside walls. We could see the nests hanging like stalactites from the roof of the cave, but weren’t allowed inside, so the other details were lost to us. 😦

In this pic, you’re probably so busy focusing on the details of the magnificent floral arrangement, that you miss my little face peeking out from behind it. 😀

Now I really must get lost in the details of what to pack and what to leave behind. :0
