3D fractal images

These are examples of fractals represented in a 3D format. The appearance here is much more organic and bizarre than the usual 2D fractal format. You can click on any of the above examples to get a larger image. Fractal art is a form of algorithmic art created by calculating fractal objects and representing the calculation results

More Fractals

These are some of the more unusual possiblities with fractal desigin software.Click on any slide to enlarge. Fractals appear similar at all levels of magnification, fractals are often considered to be infinitely complex (in informal terms). Natural objects that are approximated by fractals to a degree include clouds, mountain ranges, lightning bolts, coastlines, snow flakes, various vegetables (cauliflower and broccoli), and animal coloration patterns.
