View of Wilfred Thesiger's travelling party riding across downs in Al Batin sands during their journey across the Empty Quarter (Rub' al Khali) from Al Dhafra sands to Liwa oasis. Three members of Wilfred Thesiger's travelling party, tribesmen of the Bayt Imani lineage of Rashid Bedouin, ride camels through an expanse of small dunes bound in by a high dune massif in the left background. Each man is followed by one or two baggage camels that are tethered to his mount. In the left foreground a large dry bush grows in the sand.
