Fractals can make fantastic images of cities or temples

I drew these fractals about a decade ago using a Spanish fractal programme called "Incendia."

I entitled this, the "Golden Castle," and it kind of looks like a Himalayan mountain top temple complex or forbidden city:

Perhaps, in keeping with a Steampunk theme, the base of a religion based on the myth of Mechanical Gaia

"Decaying Gaia" JW Dunn (2005)

Which is at the centre of the Universe, modelled by the Apollonian Gear Sphere:

For those interested I remembered I took a LOT of pictures of the Far Cry one. These are all in-game, taken with my rather mediocre skills and the built in screenshot thing.

If that doesn't inspire you, you may be dead inside.
