Description

This is a very high resolution rendering of an extremely expensive region of the Mandelbrot set. I had written my own Mandelbrot renderer (like all true nerds do at one point or another) and I was looking for a really challenging region to render so I dived in using XaoS, looking for a really expensive area. I then rendered a version of this image and posted it and its image coordinates on a part of my web site devoted to fractals: superliminal.com/fractals/index.html Will open in a new tab or window daring others to render it well. One who did was Walter Brameld IV who renders fractals and posts them on his Mandlebrot Picture of the Day web site: www.mandelpod.com/archive/2009/04/21 Will open in a new tab or window/
He has a Linux server farm available and he offered to render this extremely high resolution version for me. I had it printed on canvas as a birthday gift for my mother. It still frightens her a bit because she doesn't know what world it comes from but she and her friends are impressed.
