View of Wilfred Thesiger's travelling party in the sands near Umm az Zumul well, during their journey towards Wadi Al Ayn. In the left foreground a small tree grows at the side of a wind-rippled dune. Further beyond one of Wilfred Thesiger's Bedouin companions stands in an expanse of sand dotted with small tufts of vegetation. Further behind saddles and equipment lie in the sand, and a few camels graze. In the far background a large white sabkha (salt flat) stretches out below a far ridge of high rippled dunes.
