The year is almost over, but I've finally managed to throw a stitched pano shot into the mix. This photo was created from combining five landscape photos. Embrace the scroll...

Interesting note... The roof of 801 Grand is made out of copper sheeting that was designed to form a green coating of verdigris over time, much like the Statue of Liberty. However, unlike New York City, the air pollution in Des Moines was so low that the desired oxidation process failed. The result was the copper turned a dark brown. Recently, discussions started about removing the top layer of copper so that crews could purposely cause the oxidation process to create verdigris. However, it was decided that the current color is fine, and therefore left as is.
