View of Wilfred Thesiger's travelling party in the Al Batin sands during their journey across the Empty Quarter (Rub' al Khali) from Al Dhafra sands to Liwa oasis. A member of Wilfred Thesiger's travelling party, a tribesman of the Bayt Imani lineage of Rashid Bedouin, rides his camel across a flat plain dotted with salt bushes. A baggage camel follows behind him on a rope tied to the back of his mount. In the background is a high dune massif with a sheer front face and a wind rippled crest.
