Lake Bodom by heavenriver Lake Bodom by heavenriver
Ultra Fractal 5.04

A tweak of *OutsideFate's fractal Painting of Soul.



I've found it a beautiful and very expressive fractal, so I was glad to be able to tweak it. Also, in respect of the artist's spirit while creating the original work, I kept a likely concept.
Here's the explanation both for the title and the nature of the work:

"The Lake Bodom murders were an infamous multiple homicide that took place in Finland in 1960. Lake Bodom is a lake by the city of Espoo, about 22 kilometres west of the country's capital, Helsinki. In the early hours of June 5, 1960, four teenagers were camping on the shores of Lake Bodom. Between 4AM and 6AM, an unknown person or persons murdered three of them with a knife and blunt instrument wounding the fourth. [...] The Finnish metal band Children of Bodom, who are also from Espoo, derive their name from the lake."

~ Wikipedia

I bet a lot of people know Children of Bodom, but I'm also quite sure none knew about this...

Anyhow, this is my last submission for the current year. Now I'll disappear for about 15 days. :eyes: Happy holidays to everyone! :D

This is really pretty Riv. I love marble-like fractals. Carr has a number of formulas that are marble-like.

I haven't really used his formulas much but I used one on the first fractal I posted here at DA "fe Carr Revisited" & I like the way it came out. Kind of on the marble-like side. I think he's one of the biggest contributors for formulas in the UF library. And you never know what you can make of a fractal until you start playing around with it even if you don't like the starting looks of it.

Yup, it's supposed to represent a murder after all.
It's a true and sad story.

Life's happenings aren't always good - I think we should both know the joys and sorrows of life. Accepting it entirely is essential to live well. :D
