Jungles and the Mayan World…  There is so much to appreciate about Mayan temples and other structures – but as photographers, we can also play with doorways, tunnels and sections of temples to create artistic images.

Often we walk through a tunnel and come out into a gorgeous jungle environment.  With Mayan sites surrounded by rainforest, wildlife is also present.

Barton Creek Cave… We enter the cave in our canoes into a large room, tall ceiling, interesting formations above and around us to photograph.

As we paddle our canoes seeing and photographing pots and a skull high up on ledges, our guide tells us about the ceremonies that took place here. We can’t help but wonder how the Mayans climbed those steep ledges without footholds, and without canoes and headlamps to get them there.
