View of four members of Wilfred Thesiger's travelling party trekking in the Al Dhafra sands, north-west of Liwa oasis. In the left foreground a tall scraggly bush grows on a stretch of flat sand marked by shallow secondary dunes. Just behind the bush three of Wilfred Thesiger's Rashid Bedouin companions, two of whom are carrying rifles, walk into the left distance followed by four of the party's camels. Warad, the party's saluki dog, walks along beside the men. At the far right a forth member of the party walks alongside one of the camels, holding a camel stick. In the distance low rolling dunes continue into the horizon below a cloudless sky. This image was taken during Wilfred Thesiger's journey from Al Ain to Liwa oasis, Al Dhafra and Baynunah sands in November and December 1948.
