Grand Cayman and Queen Elizabeth II Botanic Park – Tropical Shower

It is a given that there are some places on this wonderful planet that will have pop up showers right while you are in the middle of enjoying the scenery.  In tropical areas they can be infrequent depending on the season, every day like clock work, or if you happen to be there when it’s the rainy/hurricane season – you get a lot of it!  On this visit to Grand Cayman it was extra rainy.  I mean rainy to the point that one time we were caught in a down pour that flooded the street and we were trying to walk (silly tourists us) back to our condo from a perfectly dry pub in water almost up to our knees.  We still laugh about that soggy day.

This day the rain was playing with me at the park.  It would get misty and humid (and fog up my lens and glasses) then a light sprinkle and then it let go with a bit of a cloudburst.  Fortunately we were on a path that went right by a gazebo.  We made a run for it…us and a few other visitors to the park.  The gazebo overlooked a charming lily pond and well – here you go!

    The texture of the lilies is beautiful, but the water movement that the raindrops leave on the pond is what grabs my eye.

    Water lilies are so beautiful! I always wanted a yard large enough for some water for lilies. Maybe in my next life.

    At our house’s backyard in the Philippines, there’s a tree that has flowers exactly like the ones in your photo. It’s a big tree ! We call the tree “calachuchi ” . The flowers have really nice smell.

    Very cool…and I too like the raindrop circles on the water!

    You’ve caught the ripples and raindrops and turned them into a beautiful ‘painting’. Lovely!
