If you back out far enough to see some of the shape the atoms are forming, you are too far away to see them. So I made them reflect a common tree. And like looking at shapes in the clouds, it's easy to see things in the tree as well.
Fractal Flame image. This is how I imagine an Atom would photograph, if we could get a live action shot. We never can though, as light can't bounce off all those parts fast enough to be captured like this.
This is a fractal image. The spectral lens flare isn't added, it is actully part of the fractal. I am adding a category for fractals, and will be adding several more soon. See the search page to select the gallery.
