Fractal Art

Unlike many technically-oriented people who work on a computer all day, my hobbies include, well, working on the computer. A hobby which brings me great joy is designing fractal images that one could call art.

Using an application (there are several) to generate fractal images, I begin by selecting an equation, usually at random. Upon generation of the initial image, I zoom in and out on sections that look interesting; this is also when I play around with the coloring. I usually look at 10 or so images before I find one I like enough to save. I don't typically use an image more than once; there are two exceptions here; images which I saved twice with different coloring schemes. See if you can find them.

Most of the images on this site are sized to scale perfectly as desktop backgrounds, so help yourself.
