View of Wilfred Thesiger's party travelling in Al Khatam or Al Humrah sands south of Al Ain. In the foreground a line of tracks cross the middle of an expanse of wind-rippled sand, leading to where three of Wilfred Thesiger's Bedouin companions pause in the sand in the left distance. At the far left one of the men walks away from the group, carrying a rifle on his shoulder. Nearby another member of the party walks past, leading three camels. To the right a third member of the party stands beside a couched camel, adjusting its cargo. In the right distance two more members of the party trek alongside a low dune, heading into the far distance. In the far background low rolling dunes stretch across the horizon below a vast cloudless sky.
