I like how your images seem to be part of another universe more elegant and refined than our own.

Tasteful and very skilled work as always. Thanks for sharing.

I never paid any attention to fractals before discovering Caedes. Now I take the time to comment on the ones that intrigue me. This one is beautiful. I love the colors - very cool and soothing. The compostion is especially interesting - I like the placement of the "petals." Finally, the thing just gives me the feeling of a fine piece of jewelry or a beautiful stained glass window. Want to do my windows? Yeah, that's it, desktop window. Love it, Nathan. anne
