Creating Fractal Pictures

I've been fascinated by fractal images since the late 1980s. I spent lots of time writing software to produce Mandelbrot images in those days, utterly amazed at their beauty. There are actually many real-world objects with fractal properties.

I recently learned about the Apophysis software, and have been experimenting with it. The image you see here was my first real creation with it.

Here's one person who uses fractal images for backgrounds in worship.

If you have creative kids, this would be a fun program for them to play with.
