You are in the Midwest and there is a huge flood.
Homes have been lost, supplies compromised, and infrastructures destroyed.
You are taking photographs for a news service, traveling alone, looking for particularly poignant scenes.
You come across a deer hunter who has been swept away by the flood waters. He is hanging on to the branch of a tree and is about to go under.
You can either put down your camera
and save him, or take a Pulitzer prizewinning photograph of him as he
loses his grip on the branch.
