|August 1, 2011: Little Lost Child||July 31||Aug. 2||2011||FOTD Home|
Today's image is named "Little Lost Child". The reason for the name is that the parameters were lost when I saved the image in the wrong GIF format. But do not despair. The image, which rates an 8, may be viewed on the FOTD web site at:
Unfortunately, since the parameters are lost, there is no high-definition version on Hal's site.
The lost parameters are not that big a drawback because the calculation time is over an hour, and it is unlikely that many fractalists would actually have run the parameter file.
The image is a scene deep in the East Valley of a minor minibrot on the main stem of the Mandelbrot set. It is definitely not the large minibrot, but without the parameters I have no way to determine exactly which minibrot.
Even though the parameters are gone, I have chosen this image to be FOTD for August 01 because of the unusually rich, almost too rich, colors.
Monday was sultry here at Fractal Central, with a mix of clouds and sun. Thunder threatened several times but nothing ever developed. The fractal cats would have preferred a temperature a little below 90F 32C, but they made the most of things. The humans accomplished what needed to be done without incident. The next FOTD, complete with parameter file, will be posted in 24 hours. Until then, take care, and one sure way to be misinformed is to watch all those popular science shows on the cable channels.
