Fractal of the Day

FOTD -- August 27, 2006   (Rating 7)

Fractal visionaries and enthusiasts:

Today's FOTD image takes us to the Z^1.95+C Mandeloid as it appears at ground level of the logarithmic ladder.   At this level the parent fractal resembles a chopped-up Mandelbrot set.   Today's scene is located in the East Valley area of its parent.

It's an unusually attractive image for a fractal with an exponent of Z less than 2.   The 'passes=b' option works quite well with today's image, and it is by far the fastest.

I named the image "Imperfect Perfection" and rated it at a 7.   The rating could have been a 7 or an 8.   Being in a conservative mood, I decided on the rating of 7.

The 6-1/2 minute render time may be avoided by downloading the completed GIF image from the FOTD web site at:
Heavy clouds and a temperature of 73F 23C kept the sun worshippers indoors here at New Fractal Central on Saturday.   It stayed dry however, making conditions perfect for checking one of the local antique emporiums, which, with a little coaxing from fractal lady, is what I spent the afternoon doing.   The fractal cats spent the day looking for trouble.   Nico worried himself silly trying to get into the basement, but the basement still needs to be cleaned before he will be permitted to explore it.

The work is still slow, which means there should be no trouble finding and preparing the next FOTD, due to appear in 24 hours.   Until then, take care, look for the bright side and be enlightened.
