New set of fractal trees

A new set of fractal trees open images by Nirolo. Nice gradients give mystical glow to trees. Probably, these trees should grow in the foresests of the elves. Curved branches look very unusual for fractals.

Fairy Tree

A tree of Fire and Ice

The next tree is like a lightning. Branches have rough outline like real lightning. But it still variation of Pythagoras tree. The image was created by Cory Ench. Author also created several variations of this fractal.

The last image show us apocalyptic sunset with a fractal tree of very regular form. The image was created by George13.

I think the last image uses an algorithm I wrote for Ultra Fractal. The idea was to implement a simple 2 dimensional L-system. Start with one branch, and add at its end a certain number of branches at a certain angle, rescaled by a certain factor. But Ultra Fractal is not very suited for L-systems, because it works "pixel by pixel" (the same algorithm is applied to each pixel). So given a pixel, the algorithm has somehow to guess to which branch it is closest, instead of applying the L-system algorithm straightforwardly. That's why some of the branches seem to disappear when they cross.
I like the first tree, not a usual flame.
And great blog, btw.
