Staff photo by Troy Stolt / "We're just lucky to be alive" says East Brainerd resident Bill Foster as he walks up the stairs of his home on Gallahad Road on Tuesday, April 14, 2020 in East Brainerd, Tenn. Foster and his wife Barbara were laying in bed watching television late Sunday night when he received a call from his son warning that a tornado had just touched down in the Camp Jordan area. Moments after the Fosters found shelter down stairs, their house was torn apart.

From happiness to sadness and excitement to despair, Times Free Press staff photographers captured it all in 2020. 

Whether it was catching just the right angle of a great blue heron snacking on a fish or capturing the sunlight shining into a home where a roof used to be before tragedy struck in the form of a tornado, our photographers spread out far and wide to tell the stories of our region in 2020 despite the COVID-19 pandemic. 

See a gallery of the photography staff's favorite images from 2020 below.
