Inspired by Derkesthai Dreams by denise-g Inspired by Derkesthai Dreams by denise-g
One of my favorite abstract fractal images is
Derkesthai Dreams by Gary Reynolds aka *sharkrey

In exchange for my last money he has betrayed me the used formulas.
No!!! This was of course a joke. Gary is one of the most generous and
most helpful people who I know and he has helped me more than once.
Therefore, I would like to dedicate this image to him and I hope he like
it and this is a suitable cave for a Dragon.

The Dragon is the most universal motif linked to humanity for 5,000 years.
The word Dragon comes from "derkesthai" (Greek: to glance dartingly) which,
in a Hindu tradition, was the hungry look of the very first being when its fiery
spirit was born out of the abyss of water.


Created with Ultra Fractal. No Postwork except titel and border.
All comments are very welcome and much appreciated.

FULL VIEW IS MUCH BETTER!

Great dimensional piece! I love the sweeping feeling of classical architecture blended with the stark geometrical corners through the center, almost like an ancient ruin.

This is a wonderful departure from your flowers. Your flowers are lovely but it was getting time for you to stretch your wings a little. Bold step Lady, keep it up. You have a lot of talent.

Sharkrey has helped me too, in so many ways from providing links to sending notes on how to make small improvements. And the knowledge this man has gleaned on UltraFractal!

Thank you so much for your lovely comment dear Michele! :D :hug:
I am deeply grateful for all the help which Gary has given me.
I admire his work and his approach and I love his way to teach me.
I feel honoured to count to his friends.
This sounds like a flattery, but I mean this seriously.

Michele, I have not forgotten our conversation about the Sundance
festival. Some days ago the film "Hustle&Flow" has appeared on DVD
here with us. I will watch this film during the next days. I'm curious...:D

You are so welcome. Gary is a great guy. Have you seen his brother's work? He works in Terragen and does magnificent renders with this program.

Check him out!
