View of a member of Wilfred Thesiger's travelling party standing on a dune in Al Batin sands during their journey across the Empty Quarter (Rub' al Khali) from Al Dhafra sands to Liwa oasis. A line of footprints leads from the foreground towards a man, a tribesman of the Bayt Imani lineage of Rashid Bedouin, who is standing on a dune crest. The man casts a long shadow over bare, rippled sand. A vast expanse of low rolling dunes spreads out across the distance before him. A depression between distant dunes contains four large bushes growing together, and in the further distance more vegetation grows along the sides of the dunes.
