View of Wilfred Thesiger's travelling party trekking through Al Dhafra sands during their journey across the Empty Quarter (Rub' al Khali) from Dhibi well to Al Batin sands. Three of Wilfred Thesiger's travelling companions, tribesmen of the Bayt Imani lineage of Rashid Bedouin, trek in a line over the crest of a low dune. At the far left, a man waits on the crest of the dune with his camels. At the centre a man on a camel follows a third man with two baggage camels down the slope of the dune. Behind the men the crest of the dune stretches into the far distance. Another dune chain rises in the background at the far right.
