Following up on Contours, A Mathematical Coloring Book, here's another contour plot for coloring:

Like the other contour plots in the book, this plot was created using Sage. Here's the Sage notebook code, in case you want to play with the plot.

a = exp(2*pi/3*I)
f(z) = sin(z^7 + a)
f = fast_callable(f, domain=CDF, vars='z')

def ff(x, y):
    return f(CDF(x, y)).real(), f(CDF(x, y)).imag()

def iterate(func, n):
    def g(x, y):
        for i in range(n):
            x, y = func(x, y)
        return abs(CDF(x,y))
    return g

G = Graphics()
for j in range(1, 6):
    G += contour_plot(iterate(ff, j), (-1.8, 1.8), (-1.8, 1.8),
      contours=[0.2, 0.5, 1], fill=False), axes=False, aspect_ratio=1)
