While Horace could not manufacure his clouds he could choose and compose his subjects according to certain motifs that in this instance seems also like a Sykes Set. The best of this is the loveliy mix of rocks and grasses and bushes. And there is the winding highway ascending to a horizon, and the “flowering” plant – often a bush or tree – in the foreground. Here it is the shining of a tree in autumn. And all of it sill not identified. Perhaps photographers who do not identify their subject are more likely to be confident of their own identity. At least they are not thinking of communicating the central denotation of their subjects in favor of moving silently through the connotations.
