Fractal mountains

This is a 3D plot of a Mandelbrot set fractal, adjusted to look like a mountainous landscape.

I added some clouds to the background in Photoshop to help the effect.

The plot was rendered in FractalWorks, a high performance fractal renderer for Macintoshes. There is a link at the top of this gallery where you can download a fully featured version to try yourself.

If you have FractalWorks 0.5.0 or later, you can recreate a 2D version of this plot yourself by clicking the following link:
