A Little Misty, A Little Mystery

Colonial Lake, Charleston, SC  © Doug Hickok

A creeping fog veils Colonial Lake in the early hours of dawn. This could easily be the setting for an Alfred Hitchcock film or an Edgar Allen Poe mystery.

  5. Or those ever-foggy crime scenes Sherlock Holmes visits! Or even the wise and quite sneaky Chief Inspector Jacques Clouseau. The Pink Panther has already painted the sky and water to taunt him. : )

  14. Indeed!!!

    May I use this as a photo prompt for a micro fiction piece? The image and your description created a story in my head.

    Please let me know.

    Here is a link to my writing blog: magalyguerrero.blogspot.com

  15. Here is the link to the fictional bit, your gorgeous work inspired: http://magalyguerrero.blogspot.com/2011/02/misty-lake.html

    I hope you weren't expecting something "cute"; my writing tends to lean toward the dark and bloody.

    Gracias!
