This is a project i did about 8 years ago, to illustrate the stunning variety of patterns to be found in even a somewhat featureless looking region like the tip above the largest minibrot on the needle.

I used a simple gradient from white to blue to black in a uniform way across all the images. Both to highlight the thin outlines of this region and also to give the series a standardized look similar to a series of microphotographs of ice crystals.

Here's a map of where the images all are nested, followed by thumbs

Images from the needle tip (Sorry, the only format i have these in is long vertical image strips)

I got sorta addicted to making these mandelbrots and the full series of images from the needle tip is about 140!  smiley

May a trochoid in the void bring you peace

The resemblance to ice crystal patterns and snow flakes is unquestionable.

At this scale it is probably  good approximation to molecular behaviour in cooled liquid mediums under a a simple environmental pressure-temperature variation. Very cool work miquel! grin

May a trochoid of ¥h¶h iteratively entrain your Logos Response transforming into iridescent fractals of orgasmic delight and joy, with kindness, peace and gratitude at all scales within your experience. I beg of you to enrich others as you have been enriched, in vorticose pulsations of extravagance!

In fact, we can see theses kind of patterns everywhere on the Mandelbrot fractal... It was a good idea to only look onto the real axis wink .

I didn't understand how did you manage to be at the center of every "brotflake" ? Did you do it manually ?
