Standing full length portrait of Wilfred Thesiger and his camel taken during his party's journey from the As Saruq sands to Abu Dhabi. Wilfred Thesiger stands in a large expanse of flat sand to the right of the camel on which he made his second journey across the Empty Quarter (Rub' al Khali). He is wearing a headscarf, a long shirt (thobe), and a khanjar (dagger) in a cartridge belt around his waist. He holds a camel stick in one hand and the head rope of his camel in the other. His camel, saddled and loaded with gear, stands at the far left.
