Dawn of the Dead

This is the cemetery very near my home that I photographed one foggy morning a few weeks ago. The cemetery dates back over 300 years and is said to be the final resting place of several soldiers from the American Revolution. While there are very many headstones here that are very, very old, I haven't personally verified that story.

I've had an idea for quite a while to produce an image for Halloween using a model in a long black dress and/or witch's costume in a cemetery such as this. I think this would be the perfect place and now I just need a willing model. Anyone interested? Now, if only the weather could be this cooperative when I was producing that image.
