Here are two roadside landscapes from yesterday morning. The sky was still filled with nice clouds.
Winterberry (Ilex verticillata) along the road in New Salem.
Jennison Road in Wendell.
I reflected upon these two images and found both excellent. You doubled your fun playing with the clouds.

Given the reflections, one could say it was quadrupled.

I’d thought about the double doubling being like a quadrupling, but I didn’t want to get too mathematical.
I leaned toward picture number one, by the way.
I agree both are excellent but I prefer number 2. I couldn’t tell you why but I do 😗

Maybe it’s all those bright red winterberries, Andrew.
Both lovely, but I’m with Andrew, the second is my favorite, as well.
I can’t choose, so I’ll let you and Andrew choose for me. Thanks, I.K. If you don’t mind my asking (and if you do tell me, please) how did you choose Intricate Knot? I understand that it has symbolic meaning but is there something I missed by not knowing you sooner?
You’ve not missed a thing, Steve.
Briefly, Intricate Knot is the name of a character in my first book (unpublished, I’m afraid). A minor character that somehow became more important in the second book (also, unpublished. hah!). One day I realized that my brain is a bit like an “intricate knot” and along with a few other realizations, I decided that Intricate Knot is my pen name.
I hope my answer satisfies and doesn’t disappoint.
Thanks, I.K. Yes, I am satisfied. Nom de plumes have a long tradition. My brain is often twisted into a tight little knot…hence the lack of conversation in my posts. 🙂
Why not try ePublishing? Foot in the door, so to speak.
It may come to self-publishing. Being the stubborn sort, I’ll keep banging my head against the brick wall for a little while longer, yet. 🙂
My theory hmm 🙂 The 2nd photo is less cluttered and has more definition. There is a more even distribution of symmetry in the trees that are for “real” and the reflection of those trees in the water. It has more of a majestic appeal. 🙂
The 1st one is a cluttered pic although I like it with the red color which adds to the feel of Fall. But all in all the pic no 2 is the best one.
Thanks for the detailed analysis, Yvonne. I agree with you and do prefer the second. Had I posted them separately I think they may have been appreciated evenly for their own qualities but posting together does beg the comparison.
Steve, I was not trying to be a wise one here. I just had a bit of fun to see what I could come up with. Most of the time my way of thinking is pretty goofy and what I write does not mean much in the grand scope of things. I just write what I see and I’m not really trying to be a photographic analyst.
That is true for me also, Yvonne. One reason most of my posts stay with the image and don’t try to draw parallels to other subjects or philosophies is that quite often my thinking stops at shallow and not much deeper unfortunately. Every once in a while I have a lucid thought. 🙂
Upon further reflection I find both these photos reflect the beauty of autumn.
Thanks, Ann. I feel the same way about your pictures reflecting Spring. 🙂
I do love a mackerel sky, and that second photo is one of the best I’ve seen. I love the deep blues, and the patterning of the clouds. The first photo’s nice, but the second makes me happy.
Thanks, Linda. It was a great morning for clouds. I have one other image to share from that sky.. The majority agrees with you about the second image.
