Daily Deviation

Given 2008-03-07
Fractal photography, courtesy of Mother Nature! Whimsical Nature by ~Moonfruitmuse is a gorgeous photograph with effective use of depth of field to give the image levels for each set of curled leaves. The more I look, the more there is to see--the colors of the leaves, the textures, the tonal range, and did I mention it's a fractal? The golden ratio at its best. Beautiful.

From a distance they appear to be some sort of shellfish formation :)

This is a simple, elegant, perfect photo of the playfullness to be found in nature. I honestly thought it was a fractal when I saw it on the DDs page, but this is much better.
