"The sand was shimmering in the morning light
And dancing off the dunes so far away
The night held music so sweet, so long
And there we lay until the break of day

We woke that morning at the onward call
Our camels bridled up, our howdahs full
The sun was rising in the eastern sky
Just as we set out to the desert's cry

Calling, yearning, pulling, home to you

We crossed the river beds all etched in stone
And up the mighty mountains ever known
Beyond the valleys in the searing heat
Until we reached the caravanserai" - lyrics by Loreena McKennitt

Someone used your work here >> [link]
Foxfires Featured By Owner May 21, 2009  Professional Digital Artist
Aw man, thank you so much for telling me and reporting it! He apparently has blocked me from commenting and noting him, so I signed into my photography account to do so.

Well I totally noticed it since this wonderful piece is one of my fav of all time.. the sand coming out of the frame is just genius..
and he is just so stupid that he didn't even think of adjusting anything..
I thought dA would ban him, but they just removed the deviation..

And no thanks here.. It's what anyone would do..

Have a great weekend! :hug:

Lol, I think I intended this comment to be for someone else. I clicked a wrong button and ended up in your gallery instead. But I meant what I wrote; your artwork is amazing ;p
Ece-Deost Featured By Owner Jul 30, 2007
This is a gorgeous representation of McKennitt's song. From the moment I saw the title, that song was going through my head, and I could see those camels shuffling through the sands. I was amused to see the lyrics printed beneath. =P

The work is very much the ancient, mystical creativeness - from the moon to the men beneath the trees - that captures so many people's imaginations.

I'm babbling and I can't say enough. Well done.
almudena-stock Featured By Owner Jun 7, 2007
Wow...full of imagination! :clap:

Alkonost Featured By Owner May 26, 2007
Wow, this is so beautiful, and the idea is great! But although the concept is so interesting, what's truly breathtaking about it is the atmosphere, that melancholic warmth of the desert that you've captured so well. Love it :)
