Description
Distant view of a member of Wilfred Thesiger's travelling party riding along the side of a dune in Al Batin sands during their journey across the Empty Quarter (Rub' al Khali) from Al Dhafra sands to Liwa oasis. The man, a tribesman of the Bayt Imani lineage of Rashid Bedouin, rides his camel, followed by a baggage camel, along the side of a softly sloping dune. The dune has many horizontal ridges, which rise up to the peak at the top of the dune on the right. In the foreground is a single dry bush.

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.
