That fractal is divine. I feel the first one quite often. They are all mighty fine, at least to these tired old eyes.

Very lovely fractal. Have you seen the documentary by Arthur C. Clark, about fractals and the Mandelbrot set? I think it's called The Colors of Infinity. I taped it from TV onto VSH years ago, but it got damaged,and I haven't seen it re-broadcast since. I should go look and see if it's on DVD. Amazing stuff!

Oh at last. This is my second try at leaving you a comment.
I just love this and the way you used the prompt. It was not an easy one but as usual you more then pass the mark.Well done!!
It's great to read your work again.

Wonderful fractal.

Like Beloved Dreamer, this is my second time here. My last comment disappeared. You wouldn't be talking politics, would you??

Hi TW, I like these. Thank you for coming to my attempt, I had the solution for the first one. A lot cheaper than laser surgery too!

I have to feel for the first one (have been wearing glasses since the age of five)...
Well done.

The first is my favourite, but all were enjoyed. Altered by time... yes.

i appreciate all of these; esp the first one - I've had glasses or contacts since third grade. I falter a lot in that department. That fractal is absolutely a stunner. I love it.

I agree, I like the second one best. It hits the spot and sums it up well!
