View of a member of Wilfred Thesiger's travelling party standing on a dune in Liwa oasis. The man, a tribesman of the Bayt Imani lineage of Rashid Bedouin, stands with his hands at his sides on the crest of a low dune ridge. Behind him is another low sand ridge, and beyond that a vast salt flat (sabkha) dotted with vegetation. In the far distance groves of date palms grow along the far edge of a salt flat where it is bordered by high, sheer-faced dune massifs.
