I'm captured by the artistic aspect of fractal structures, and I'm always amazed that something supposedly sober and dry as mathematics is capable of producing such stunning things.
I see in these pictures infinite beauty, a mirror of the universe and images of nature...

Excerpt from the definition in Wikipedia:
"A fractal is a natural phenomenon or a mathematical set that exhibits a repeating pattern that displays at every scale.
The general consensus is that theoretical fractals are infinitely self-similar, iterated, and detailed mathematical constructs having fractal dimensions, of which many examples have been formulated and studied in great depth. Fractals are not limited to geometric patterns, but can also describe processes in time. Fractal patterns with various degrees of self-similarity have been rendered or studied in images, structures and sounds and found in nature, technology, art, and law."
The basis of my fractal images are mathematical formulas which are iterated by a fractal generator software and then are displayed graphically.
Smallest changes in one of the parameter in these formulas always generate new images.
When I like an image, the journey continues: With the help of the technical possibilities offered by the software, such as zoom in or out, select details, elaboration of colour graduation, overlay with multiple levels or transformations etc. until the image is finished.
