Fractals

I've decided to play around with Apophysis for some time now. I've always wanted to be creative in some way, and this allows me to be creative and make really beautiful images quickly. Check out my first good render:

I've decided to call this one "Afterburn". Technically, this is Fractal Flame art. Fractals are images that are self-similar, you can zoom into them indefinitely and see basically the same type of structures repeating indefinitely, with some variations. And Fractal Flames are a special kind of Fractal, as far as I can tell. It's all math that I don't understand. If I understand it better, I'll post it here.

BTW: The fullscreen render here took around 30 minutes on my P4. Some images take as much as a day to render at high qualities.
