Fractals from the Ultra Fractal page.

Ultra Fractal is a Windows desktop program that uses a unique method that uses parameters, plugins, and gradients to create Mandlebrot-based fractals.  It’s a unique design from other standard Mandlebrot fractal programs.  You don’t need to do a course on fractals to use it.  For info and shared parameters and gradients, go to the group on DeviantArt.com.

Fractals from the Apophysis page.

Apophysis is a Windows/Mac desktop program that creates Mandlebrot-based fractals in a unique editor.  It is very similar to other programs based on its creation of parameters, plugins, and gradients.  You don’t need to do a course on fractals to use it.  For info and shared parameters, plugins, and gradients, go to the group on DeviantArt.com.

"Fractal geometry is everywhere, even in lines drawn in the sand. It's the cycle of life... You see fractals in plants, in flowers. Within the human lung are branches within branches."

I saw a fractal documentary on PBS once and it was illuminating.  If you’re so interested, I recommend going the page linked in the above image.  It’s difficult to view on the PBS page, so either read the documentary linked in the above image, or view the YouTube video uploaded by Teamfresh at Fractal.co.
