who was the photographer?  where is that lake / reservoir located?  Crime logs for the area going back a few decades (or more)?


should be a good story behind that one!

Where did that one come from? Looks like a lava flow covered that Pinto- Hawaii?

These are cool!

maybe it could have been from one of those action police drama shows from the '70s. like chips or emergency. the film crew and producers didn't feel like pulling out of the pond
