View of a member of Wilfred Thesiger's travelling party riding through 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 across an expanse of soft bare sand towards a high dune in the far distance. A baggage camel follows behind him on a lead. In the far distance, where the sheer face of the high dune meets the plain, a few bushes dot the sand.
