Seated portrait of Wilfred Thesiger taken during his party's journey from the As Saruq sands to Abu Dhabi near the end of his second journey across the Empty Quarter (Rub' al Khali). Wilfred Thesiger crouches on the side of a sand ridge, leaning on a camel stick in his right hand and resting his other hand on his knee. He wears a headscarf, a patterned loincloth, and a long shirt (thobe). Behind him is a ridge of small bushes.
