View of Wilfred Thesiger's travelling party trekking through Al Dhafra sands during their journey across the Empty Quarter (Rub' al Khali) from Dhibi well to Al Batin sands. Three of Wilfred Thesiger's travelling companions, tribesmen of the Bayt Imani lineage of Rashid Bedouin, cross a vast empty flat plain dotted with sparse tufts of vegetation. Two men are mounted on camels, while the third man, at the far right, leads his two camels on foot. In the background behind the men is a long, rolling dune.
