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 on his hips at a high point on a dune ridge. Behind him are a few more ridges of dunes, and beyond a large salt flat (sabkha) dotted with vegetation. A few clusters of thicker vegetation grow along the far edge of the salt flat, where the flat meets high, sheer-faced dunes. At the left, a stray camel stands in the midst of the sands.
