View of Wilfred Thesiger's party trekking through the As Saruq sands north of Liwa oasis during their journey to Abu Dhabi. In the foreground an expanse of wind-rippled sand is dotted with tracks and footprints. In the further distance one of Wilfred Thesiger's travelling companions, a tribesman of the Bayt Imani lineage of Rashid Bedouin, walks his camel through the sand. Ahead of him the rest of the party walks ahead with their camels. Surrounding the party an expanse of low crescent-shaped dunes stretches out in every direction.
