Veil - mist

< Previous | Next >


I read the book translated from Serbian to English. In the serbian texte the author talks about a mist and little bit later calls it - opaque white veil -
The transation in english is - milky white veil.-
So my question is next: is ok in english to use the word - veil - for a mist.

    The word veil can be used to describe a covering, e.g. a veil of mist covered the ground. So it does make sense, although I would only expect to see this in writing.
