Well, to start this off I suppose I should mention that all my artistic skill could fit into about a thimble an while I did "create" the following images it was ridiculously easy and required me only to twiddle some numbers until something that struck me popped out. I was wondering around the internet yesterday when I fell accross an open source program called Apophysis http://www.apophysis.org/ (if you download it, download the beta build). It is a fractal image generator (fractal images are images created via a mathematical mapping of points) Some other images that other users have created blow mine out of the water. The real reason I was so interested in it is I recently went from a dual monitor (1280x1024 - 1600x1200) to tri-monitor (1600x1200 - 1680x1050 - 1280x1024) and could not find any wallpapers that would fit that. So hence, the small thin images you see are actually 4560x1200, but when resized down to 800x### get really thin. The rendering times vary widely, some of them only took around 10 minutes to generate, others took over 10 hours.
