One Second After, by Michael Bowmen

This image was inspired by the book “One Second After” by William R. Forstchen, which depicts a fictionalized terrorist attack on the United States with “EMP” weapons and the aftermath. The subject matter of the image has it’s own history, it is of the North Truro Air Force Station on the tip of Cape Cod that functioned as a Nike radar facility during the Cold War. The base has been abandoned since approximately 1985 and is a good example of a residential neighborhood turning back to the elements minus people.
