Hello and welcome to The Old Forest , a template created by Six Shooter Media for the Open Web Design contest titled "Favourite Book". "The Old Forest" is the title of a chapter in the first book of the Lord of the Rings trilogy; The Fellowship of the Ring. It happens to be my favourite chapter in the whole of this first book for its wonderfully colourful descriptions of the beginning of the Hobbits adventure. They leave the Shire and also meet Tom Bombadil, whoc rescues them in this chapter which sadly was left out of the motion picture.
The image in the header is in fact a stock photo which I found on SXC. I simply took it, cropped it a bit and changed the hue and saturation to acheive an effect which I feel makes the shot look like the edge of the Old Forest as described in the book and how I picture it in my head.
