Spring and Fractals

 " From sea shells and spiral galaxies to the structure of human lungs, the patterns of chaos are all around us.

Fractals are patterns formed from chaotic equations and contain self-similar patterns of complexity increasing with magnification. If you divide a fractal pattern into parts you get a nearly identical reduced-size copy of the whole.

The mathematical beauty of fractals is that infinite complexity is formed with relatively simple equations. By iterating or repeating fractal-generating equations many times, random outputs create beautiful patterns that are unique, yet recognizable."

-  Jess  Mcnally

On yesterdays walk with Suzie spring time fractals were everywhere to be seen. The stunning nature of our planet is impossible to ignore when one strolls along the riverbank amid these new born  leaves .




                                           Fractals everywhere I look.

 The link below has some really amazing fractals.
