Alchemy by rad-ix Alchemy by rad-ix
Alchemy ...the pursuit of turning base metals into gold ...just like the golden tones of autumn.

This was in a stretch of forest I found the other day which looked for all the world like it had no access to it. With a bit more persistence I eventually found a narrow cow track which led around the edge of it between a farm and a field. The forest looked like it had been completely forgotten by the whole world.

Note on the panorama format: The picture was constructed from four separate vertical images stitched together in PS/CS2.

Alchemy by =rad-ix Beautiful autumn colors of gold and red help accentuate the natural bend in the earth (I'm a sucker for autumn). Has good room on top and below for icons, and not many wide screen walls get attention they way they deserve. ( Suggested by Aeires and Featured by zilla774 )

Even having confessed to the four separate images, I cannot see the seams = excellent work.

Thanks for the hard work.

The colours are magnificent, the panorama construction apparently worked very well, at least I can't see any traces of the stitching.
There doesn't seem to be a download option (anymore)?

I wonder how many comments and favorites you get on this photo a week, since you received the DD on it in 2007.

Just wanted to say this is an absolutely beautiful photo, and I'm quite envious of you for it. An easy favorite, and added to my new collection of desktops. :)
