View of Wilfred Thesiger's travelling party in the sands near Umm az Zumul well, during their journey towards Wadi Al Ayn. In the foreground small tufts of vegetation sprout from a patch of sand where four of Wilfred Thesiger's Bedouin companions, far left, are unloading the party's camels. A number of already unloaded camels wander across the sands in search of grazing. In the distance behind them a large white sabkha (salt flat) stretches out below a far ridge of high rippled dunes.
