Clouds in the water

A bit incongruous, seeing clouds in the water; even more so when the clouds turn to smoke. How can one relatively realistic photograph create such visual confusion? That's the mystery...

I’m amazed what the camera shows me. When I shot this, I saw the clouds reflected in the water. But I was more interested in the interplay of branches and leaves. Then when I saw the shot larger, I realized that the interest was in the wispy cloud made wispy by the moving water. The interplay of reflection and object was the name of the game.
