... And Away Now

Hello Friends, and Visitors.

As for many of us (on the northern hemisphere) this summer has been quite hot and long here.
I have learned once more that I'm a person who belongs to the northern areas of the world. The heat made me lazy and non-creative.
That is the main reason that I was so lazy in creating new pictures, commenting your great works, and answering your comments.
I'm sorry for that !  Ashamed 

But, no, my relative absence from the community has not found its end yet.
Once now the summer has finished I start my vacation.
And of course it will go to more northern regions - to Canada.

Since I will not be able to work through all faves etc. I would like to say you at this way a big Thank :TipOfTheHat:  You for your faves, llllamas, comments, etc!

See you (hopefully) after the vacation.

I will leave my previous commentars below.
With a few pictures the comment box looks nicer ;-)

Back So Far - Now With Solution

Hello Again.

Just wanted to give another sign of life. -
I'm back from vacation and found now a few minutes to update my dA page.
There is still not much time for this kind of social life for me :-( - but I will try to come back to you whenever I can.

I need to thank you for all your faves - I will try to answer comments, watches and so on. But there are too many :+fav:es that I would be able to answer all of them ;-)

Especially I need to thank you for your votes for the Mandelbulb3DTeasers no.22 -
I was really surprised when I came back and saw that I reached the second rank for Thornball by gannjondal  - after a tie-break.

- Many, many thanks  !
  Seams that I need to say again a Big Thank You to the Mandelbulb3DTeasers community. -
  Ok, one may become a bit sad with getting two second places in a row ;-) .
       I'm nevertheless happy as I did not expect so many votes also for this one:  Thistlewood by gannjondal

For now a little puzzle:  -


I've uploaded a few pictures from my vacation - without telling where the pics have been taken.
Feel free to comment if you have an idea about the places.
For now:  I indeed remained in Europe....

Journal History


gannjondal's Profile Picture
Ok. For now let's start with the very beginning.
I became addicted in fractals --- ages ago.
Probably in the early 1990s if not earlier.

Of course at that ancient times the computers did have certain limitations.
The first pictures needed a day or so for e.g. 80x60 pixels of 2 colors. Fast-escaping formulas of course.

I left the path, and came back - again and again.

At the first years it has been more interesting to manipulate formulas than to create art.
So the maximum what could result were pictures like my current ID (which is of course a manipulation).

But finally I started tough to try to bring more quality in the pictures.
So I think I should take the consequence, and go public.

No fear - I will not upload more pics from the middle ages ;-).
It just may happen that I will not be able to refrain some pics from the UF era, or some simple but unusual shapes: It seams that there are still some lovers of minimal art.

I hope I will not confuse you too much with wandering through the decades. However it may happen that there will not alwas be the newest artwork in my uploads.

I don't know whether I'm an artist - please decide for yourselves. Finally there is of course the quite hope that there are a few people who like one or another of the pics.
