All ORIGINAL PHOTOS!
Our work is very unique, we do not plagiarize others work or post any one else's pictures. Some have asked us to post their images on ForestWander, but that would defeat our purpose. ForestWander captures all of our images by hiking in the Forests and Mountains and photographing these images from our own perspective!
All ORIGINAL WORK!
All of our work is original! NONE of our images come from stock photo sources like other nature picture sites. Me and my boy Rusty hike the deep forests and mountain trails, capturing all of our images with a high resolution digital camera. we have literally hiked hundreds of miles through the forests gathering these images to share with you! May GOD Bless you!
The awesome display of creation seen throughout the forests of this beautiful earth, have captured the hearts of men, women and children from all races and nations, for thousands of years.
Hi, I am Troy and my son Rusty. Together we make up forestwander dot com.
For the past several years we have hiked the deep forests of the mountains in West Virginia while capturing these moments with a high resolution digital camera.
In our travels we have visited the high reaches of the North Fork Mountain Range, all the way to the bogs and marshes of cranberry glades.
This video is a compilation of some of our best pictures that we have taken over the years.
We hope that you enjoy visiting our website and we want you to feel welcome to come back frequently and browse our new pictures that are added at the change of each season.
All of our high resolution pictures are free to use for personal or commercial purposes. We only ask that if you use our pictures for a commercial purpose that you credit our website www.forestwander.com for the work that we do.
Our hosting fees are supported from the advertisements on ForestWander, so this is why we have advertisements.
Now, sit back and relax as we take you wandering through the mountains, valleys and forests of West Virginia.
May God Bless you!
The Testimony of ForestWander Nature Photography
I also thought I would give some insight as to who I am and what I am about. Forest Wander was an idea that the Lord inspired me to create based on the song How Great Thou Art! That is one of, if not the all time favorite worship song the Lord has blessed me with. I was saved several years ago. Our family had been through some pretty rough times when my son had almost lost his life. I realized that I needed help and that my wife and I could not any longer get through this life on our own. I was miserable and had no way out.
I had been to church off and on all of my life. I had heard about religion and thought I knew what it was all about. I figured I had never hurt anyone and that I was a pretty good 'ol boy. But, I realized through the WORD of God that it has nothing to do with me, but it has all to do with Him! People are not sent to Hell because of their sin. They are sent to Hell because they have turned down the only begotten son of God and what He has already finished on the Cross of Calvary. Jesus said "this is the condemnation that light is come into the world and that men loved darkness rather than light", That light is Jesus Christ.
You ever notice that men love to hear bad news? They don't like good news. Well Jesus spoke this 2000 years ago when He walked the earth. There is a scripture that says (and yes I do mean SAYS) "As cold waters to a thirsty soul, so is good news from a far country", Jesus is Good news people! He is not bad news. The bad news is this world and the hate and crime and violence.
I have been saved for some time now and it is the best life you can live. Because any other way is death and hell. I know that my hope is not in this life only but that it is in eternity with Jesus. You can have that same peace also, if you are ready to realize what Jesus did for you and that you cannot get through this life on your own and that you realize that you are going to hell without him.
I now have a family of 5. A twin boy and girl and our little boy who was hurt. They are all healthy as can be and it is all by the grace of God. Me and my oldest son hike throughout the forests and take time to pray and read scripture. We even take turns quoting verses from the Bible. When we are out hiking we take pictures and these are the images that are posted on forest wander.
We simply hope that someone may be touched and give their life to Jesus Christ it is all worth the effort. I simply want others who do not have the peace that the Lord has to offer to realize His love and accept His gift.
When you look at some of these images that the Lord has allowed me to take you realize that what you see was not created by accident. You realize that God loves beauty and color and this is just a glimpse of what heaven is going to be like. This earth was cursed since the Garden of Eden. The Bible says that there is going to be a new heaven and a new earth wherein dwelleth righteousness. Just imagine a world where sin has never dwelled and never will dwell. If you think some of these pictures are beautiful then picture the new heaven and new earth. What a gift and opportunity for you to be saved. Won't you join me there? It is as simple as this. Salvation comes through trusting Jesus as the sacrifice for your sins and loving Jesus and His precious Blood for what He has done, and that is it!
