  2. Oh, these are wonderful! I think the Hubble images are just about the most wondrous thing since we began to look at the stars!
    You might enjoy taking a look at Apophysis… It’s an open source program (I use it on Windows) that is a fractal generator… Lots of fascinating patterns can pop up randomly, or you can tweak the variables to see what kinds of effects you can get…

    • Leslee,
      Welcome first-time commenter. Besides their beauty, Hubble images reinforce my views of creation. Sometimes I go to the Hubble Gallery just to look again!

      Thanks for the Apophysis tip. I looked at a few of the clips on YouTube – simply wow! Thus I will have to take a closer look. By the way, good stuff at your blog! Thanks for visiting!


  3. These are beautiful, a great idea to collect the headers – I’ve been trying to keep mine headers seasonal. I started in winter… and now it’s spring already. Great tip! Guess what I’m off to do 🙂

    • Kanerva,
      Welcome first-time commenter. Glad you liked the header collection. I’m overdue to change, but I like this one – not that I disliked the others though. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you return!


    • Noeleen,
      Welcome first-time commenter. Glad you enjoyed the past headers. (I obviously enjoy images of deep space). Personally, they expand my understanding of creation. Thanks for visiting and commenting.


  4. Nebulae are really interesting. The header for 2009 has a very fractal feel to it. Seeing the correlation between nebulae and fractals is very simple. Mathematics are everywhere. Great choices in shots, Frank.

  5. I love all your headers… when I saw you were going to change it, I was sad, thinking the space thing would be gone… but I see I have NO reason to worry!!!
    Red really has fractals on the mind, doesn’t she!?!?!? (AND I’M GLAD SHE DOES, as she is publishing a book of my fractal art soon!)
    I like your blog, sir… mind if I come by every now and again?

    • Kat,
      Welcome first-timer and fellow Guaponian fellower. Ah ha … you see my pattern with headers. I love deep space pics, thus now and then I go by the Hubble gallery just to look at pictures. I look forward to learning and seeing more fractals from you! … and good to hear about the connection between Red and you. Of course you can stop by – and even whenever you want. As you can tell, topics here cover a wide array – but I do tend to lighten up a bit in December. Thanks for taking the time to visit.

  7. AFrank:

    You asked me to comment with respect and you know how hard that is for me. I like your idea for past headers so much that I have now added one on my own site (and given you credit for the idea). Of course, mine is not as awe-inspiring as yours. That’s why I link to your pictures.
