13th Secret Of Cathedral Woods by MANDELWERK 13th Secret Of Cathedral Woods by MANDELWERK
The fallen spring... I saw Fractal dreams had a contest about favourite time of year, and when I found this piece (a part of a "cathedral window" I found in the "Xth secret of" fractal I have been scrutinizing for a while now, see my gallery!) I did this version of it. The original "cathedral window" image is here now:
And a tweak of Cathedral Woods:

My favourite time of year is CHANGE: spring AND fall.
I feel that this image illustrates both seasons, from the colourful fall to the light crisp green spring.

This is a close up of an mandelbox fractal (a 3D box folded in the 4th dimension) rendered with Mandelbulb 3D.

I got my first DD on this piece! :) Thank you for all your nice comments! :bow:

On the one year anniversary of my first Daily Deviation I wanted to honor '13th Secret Of Cathedral Woods' with a new, bigger render:

Daily Deviation

Given 2010-10-29
I couldn't even keep track of how many people suggested this piece or this artist to me over the last couple of months. ~MANDELWERK takes you on a walk through the hushed and spooky autumn scene 13th Secret Of Cathedral Woods. Elegant detail, incredible color control, and a great instinct for composition mark this as a masterpiece by a master fractalist. Also suggested by mintyy ( Suggested by MayaVogrin and Featured by NatalieKelsey )

Nice. Reminds me of Gaudi's church -- La Sangria Familia (or something like that).

Sagrada Familia, a beautiful surreal cathedral, my last visit was a few years ago, I have to go back soon.
Sangria is something you drink while looking at it! :)

This is so beautiful it brought tears to my eyes. I have a thing about trees, ( I used to talk to them when I was a child, and I find this incredibly beautiful. It makes me wish that I could walk into such a place. I find a very strong sense of spirit among this. Perhaps that sounds silly but I do. I have always believed that one feels closest to the creator when among the creation, which is not inside a building.

Thank you for sharing your talent and this beauty with us.
Also, congratulations on your Daily Deviation!

Thank you for one of the most beautiful comments I have got so far.
I feel good inside when I hear someone gets these kind of feelings from one of my images.
Beautiful story Lea. I might be able to get a bit closer to your wish about walking into it, I might do an animation of these woods some day, you would be able to walk infinitely far into it... I did one of this "forest": [link]

On youtube here: [link]

Thank you Lea! :rose:

I bow to your comment my friend.
My most popular piece (due to the DD).
I do like it a lot myself, the cathedral feeling was something that made me totally lost.
I think about the tree pillars inside Sagrada Famillia... which is something of the most beautiful craziness I have ever seen in any architectural piece.
