Mandelbrot fractal. Computer artwork of a part of the Mandelbrot Set, a pattern generated using a simple repeating mathematical process. The process of repetition (called iteration) is applied to a set of complex numbers. The patterns formed are infinitely complicated, appearing qualitatively the same on whatever scale they are viewed. A magnification, however large, of any part of the image, produces an image which looks very similar. Such repetition and fractional dimensionality is seen here. The study of such chaotic mathematical behaviour is used as a means of modelling real- world processes from stock market prices to population dynamics and fluid turbulence.

Statues and moat at the Southern Gateway to Angkor Thom Cambodia 2n
Angkor Thom, Cambodia - 19 January 2005
A triumph of Medieval Khmer culture, the treasures of Angkor Wat and Angkor Thom in Cambodia are incomparable. Angkor Thom (Great City) was the last and most enduring capital city of the Khmer empire. It was established in the late twelfth century by King Jayavarman VII. Many of its temples were submerged by tropical forest for centuries, and trees continue to shatter and pierce the ruins. This imposing bridge, guarded by a statues and moats, is at the southern entrance to the city, seen at sunrise.
