The Mesmerizing Beauty Of Nature's Fractalsimage from Google Earth
Google Earth: source of information, source of wonder, source of art. In 2010, Paul Bourke, a research associate professor at the University of Western Australia, began using the service to capture images for his ongoing Google Earth Fractals series.
