View of Wilfred Thesiger's travelling party taking a rest in the 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, rest on their mounts beside a small bush. Their camels are chewing twigs from the bush. Except for the small bush, all the sand surrounding the men is bare of vegetation.
