Fractal Rivers

I wish I had a scanning electron microscope. It would take pictures like this, at least that's what I think it looks like. These are fractals that I generated using the Mandelbulb rendering software. The coolest thing about fractals is that the closer you look, the more you see. Makes you want to just dive in and keep zooming, which you can do until your computer's floating point arithmetic runs out of digits.

Fractals are endlessly fascinating.

Here is a link to an interesting fractal fly though: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bO9ugnn8DbE

What software are you using?

These were made with Mandelbulb 3d.

Lovely.

I love that video, Michael. It was made with the same program I'm using - I'm just on the other end of that learning curve.
