Tornadoes, digital imaging, and beheaded pines

One the greatest things about working digitally is the immediacy, even when working in a large format. I took these pictures about 8 hours ago. This was the first chance I had to drive around the Harrison TN area that was hit on April 27th by tornado(es). I still can't process the emotion I felt but I sure as hell can process the images.

Sometimes I have to force myself to stop and make an image, and when I don't give in, it gnaws at me like guilt. I don't want to make these images, I had to make these images.

I made these two, and I was done. I may go back tomorrow, I may not.
