Why does blood take on such a colour after a couple of hours?

blood

Is this the iron in my blood being oxidised to iron (III) oxide or is this something else?

I have checked this article, and no I do not find a definite answer to my question. I want to learn about the chemistry behind this change in colour of blood from bright red to brown. thanks
