View of Wilfred Thesiger's travelling party trekking towards a palm grove in Liwa oasis. In the foreground a few clumps of qassis (sedge) grow scattered across an expanse of bare sand. Further beyond four of Wilfred Thesiger's Rashid Bedouin companions ride camels across sand towards a few groves of date palms. The groves grow in a depression along the edge of a sand flat, below a high, sheer-faced dune that rises on the left. In the distance low sand dunes stretch across the far horizon. 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.
Due to the nature of these images, prints will reproduce any signs of age, wear or damage that occurred before they were archived by the Pitt Rivers Museum.
