Creek Fall Foliage Leaf Floating
As I stood in the middle of the creek attempting to capture the essence of the fall foliage and creek scenery I noticed this small leaf floating by. My desire was to capture the rocks under the water, the leaf and the fall foliage in the background. Doing all this while standing on a rock about 10 inches wide must have been funny to watch!

Autumn Lake Morning Foliage
In the early morning the lighting is perfect for photography not too bright and not too dim. The colors are vibrant in this colorful late autumn scene at a local lake. It is quiet and peaceful as I survey the landscape for scenery to frame and capture. One thing I try for with a scene like this is to wait until the water is calm to give a peaceful reflection of the colorful foliage.

Hiking through a high mountain trail at Mount Mitchell North Carolina. This hiking trail is on top of the highest mountain peak east of the Mississippi river. The high mountain fog is drifting through the trees in the middle of the day. The turn in the path up ahead makes one wonder what could be around the bend.

Frigid Ice Cave Rocks
In a small little rock crevasse a rock cave can be imagined with icicles surrounding the opening. The colorful minerals of the Blackwater river give the rocks the orangish colors. This was taken during an extremely arctic blast when the temperatures only reached about 5 degrees throughout the day. Even in the smallest of places the Lord's creation and beauty is displayed.

Country Church Snow Creek
Along a country road in the mountains of West Virginia a small country church is found along side a gentle flowing creek. Just after a winter snow storm the white winter background enhances the photo composition of this old fashioned pristine gospel church.

Macro Spider Flowers
A very small spider hiding on these flowers caught my eye as we were walking through the woods. If you look closely you will see it has 4 eyes on top and I would imagine 4 eyes on the bottom.

Yellow Fall Foliage Trees
Looking through the trees in the forest the yellow fall colors are a wonderful display of natures beauty.
One of the most scenic waterfalls found along the Blue Ridge Parkway in North Carolina. The Crabtree Falls are a beautiful sight to behold after a moderate hike down the hiking trail to see these picturesque waterfalls. You may be able to tell that the day light was growing dim in the evening hours when we took this picture. This made the long exposure optimal.

Robber Fly Eating
I had never heard of a robber fly and I mistakenly called this a dragon fly. But never the less this is one of the most vicious looking insects I have ever seen. Especially when magnified at a macro level. Wondering what that is beneath it? It is a moth it has captured and eating. This insect stayed perfectly still as long as I was taking pictures of it. Then when I moved away it fly off. Not sure if it was just being bold or trying to go undetected.

Nature Pictures by ForestWander Nature Photography Mission
ForestWander is a father and son team of photographers from West Virginia. In 2004 Troy and Rusty Lilly (4 years old at the time) began hiking in the Monongahela National Forest in West Virginia. With a Canon Powershot A50 1-Megapixel digital camera ForestWander began capturing digital pictures of flowers, forests, wildlife, fall foliage, waterfalls and mountains; when Rusty and his dad could go hiking in the mountains. While walking home from work one day singing the song "How Great Thou Art" the second verse from the song spoke to Troy's heart as he sang "When through the Woods and Forest Glades I Wander". Then the name for ForestWander Nature Photography was penned.
Troy became a born again Christian many years ago and has dedicated many years to sharing the Gospel message through God's creation in computer desktop wallpaper pictures. The scripture from Psalm 19 tells that "The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork. Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge". The many examples of free high resolution wallpaper throughout ForestWander's nature pictures are prime examples of this Handywork; and are an undeniable testimony of the almighty creator, who has made all things for His Glory.
