Friday Fractal on Monday

Winter weather in New Hampshire is so different than the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont. We don't have endless long days of snow that keep you inside. No days of -20° (-29°C). There is even more daylight here. My plans of spending the dark winter days playing with fractal software never materialized. So early this morning, I finally knuckled down and began to learn the XaoS software package for fractals. I came up with this fractal in 3 different palettes. I see jagged edges and seams and I'm having problems controlling the fractal on the screen. I also seriously need to figure out how to manipulate Julia set images.

XaoS is a gnu project. I like the documentation with that comes with it and its mathematical descriptions are more accessible than other packages. Animation is also available, but I haven't figured out yet how to convert the movie to QuickTime. XaoS is available for Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, BSD and even DOS, BeOS, and OS/2.

These images that I created today are, to me, black holes. Or worm holes.Visit Mary's Friday Fractal posts here, and here. She has created some wonderful images.
