This photographer is in the running to win a National Geographic Contest

"My son Rusty and I started hiking in the West Virginia forests and mountains in 2004 when I was first saved," he said. "One day on the way home from work, I was humming the gospel song 'How Great Thou Art,' and the Lord inspired me to begin hiking with my son so that we could spend time together in the outdoors."

So, they began taking pictures of their journeys.

"We found that we really enjoyed it, because it is glorifies God's creation," he said. "Now, we have hiked hundreds of miles through the forests of West Virginia, taking pictures and enjoying our father and son time together every chance we get."

He won!

Now all that's left to do is clean up the non-forest parts of WV so when the people who see this photo go there they won't be too shocked to see most of the state is far from that image.
