View of Wilfred Thesiger's travelling party trekking through Al Batin sands during their journey across the Empty Quarter (Rub' al Khali) from Al Dhafra sands to Liwa oasis. Three members of Wilfred Thesiger's travelling party, tribesmen of the Bayt Imani lineage of Rashid Bedouin, ride camels across a rolling plain bordered by high sheer dunes. In the foreground a large expanse of bare sand marked with a rippled surface. The plain behind the party is covered in small dunes and dotted with sparse vegetation.
