View of Wilfred Thesiger's Bedouin companions visiting the encampment of Muhammad, a sheikh of the Rashid Bedouin, in the Ramlat ar Rabbad sands near Bir Al Tawil. Six Bedouin kneel around a fire pit and a metal pot. Spread out around the men are pieces of firewood and piles of blankets and equipment. Muhammad hosted Wilfred Thesiger and his men at this encampment for a number of days during Wilfred Thesiger's first crossing of the Empty Quarter (Rub' al Khali).
