Free 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 in 2004 and now 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.

One motto that has followed this divinely inspired ministry comes directly from Bible scripture and a commandment given by Jesus to His disciples, "Freely Ye have Received, Freely Give".
