Procedurally generated landscape: islands

Procedurally generated landscape from pterandon on Vimeo.

What's cool about this one is that the pools of water-- the depressions between the hills, eventually become hills in a sea full of islands. No, I don't understand this function at all-- I'm just plugging in parameters and making pretty pictures. Again, made using the f_hetero_mf function in povray.

The original 640x480 video is at Vimeo. I did some reading on the internet and folks were saying that Vimeo is better for letting you upload larger images. This one might look better at Vimeo.
