View of Wilfred Thesiger's travelling party trekking through Al Batin sands, near Liwa oasis, during their journey across the Empty Quarter (Rub' al Khali). Two members of Wilfred Thesiger's travelling party, tribesmen of the Bayt Imani lineage of Rashid Bedouin, ride camels across a flat area of sand in front of a low, wind-rippled dune. In the foreground the sand is mostly bare, however in the background salt bushes grow across the sand. High clouds pass over the dunes.
