View of exposed bedrock in Al Dhafra sands of the Rub' al Khali, taken during Wilfred Thesiger's journey to Baynunah. In the right foreground a bare sand dune borders a deep depression. Exposed rings of sedimentary sandstone sit above the sand floor of the depression. Behind it scattered vegetation grows on the slope of a dune bordering the depression. This image was taken during Wilfred Thesiger's journey from Al Ain to Liwa oasis, Al Dhafra and Baynunah sands in November and December 1948.
