Views of fractal mountains

“Why geometry is often described as cold and dry? One reason lies in its inability to describe the shape of a cloud, a mountain, a coastline, or a tree. Clouds are not spheres, mountains are not cones, coastlines are not circles, and bark is not smooth, nor does lightning travel in a straigth line.”(Benoit B. Mandelbrot, The fractal geometry of nature, 1982)
