Deep in the sandy desert, hidden by dunes and mirages, the Wind Temple stands, abandoned long ago by its ancient builders. To this day, the Temple produces an eerie howl when the warm desert winds fly though it.

And that's all I know about it.

This is an entry for an exotic environments contest.

Edit: Oh, hey a DD! Thank you ^casperium! :hug:

I cherish this picture. It takes me to another place I do not know. It reminds me that I know very little, but that's okay, welcome, in fact.
Life, the Universe and everything is not boring! -It is extraordinary and mysterious and often times in so, comforting.
Great, great work. Heart

I think I saw them and if not I shall...one day. Anyway, the piece is breathtaking, but the temple seems a little bit like it was made from noodles.

The way the light passes through that orb to the ground is just beautifully handled. I can't get my head around it. I wouldn't even know where to start if I tried something like that :)

I got the idea from glass marbles I had as a kid. Their shadows always had an area of light that was the same color as the marble, and that fascinated me a lot when I was little.

wow this looks like something you'd see in a video game. More then that it just looks really cool. It's got a sort of exciting look to it. I think it would be exciting to see as a real thing. Even if just a moveable, digital environment it would have a level of excitement to it. This is very good work. Quite astonishing
