Wasn't entirely sure where on earth to put this, it's mathematical based art but the art forum is for personal work only so the science/technology section seemed the most fitting.

Make sure you check out the links at the bottom, there's way more pictures thanks to the awesomeness of what fractals are.

Nice find, never knew there were actual renders of 3D fractals out there.

Here's a vid of one:

Why not?
There are even real structures and parts of organisms (!) which are de facto fractals:
green cauliflower (ROMANESCO)- typical organical 3D fractal

Rivers, snow flakes, trees (in modern FPS games the trees are grown, sometimes using "polysplines") and many others are also fractals (within some bounds).
