View of Wilfred Thesiger's travelling party trekking through Al Dhafra sands during their journey across the Empty Quarter (Rub' al Khali) from Dhibi well to Al Batin sands. Some of Wilfred Thesiger's travelling companions, tribesmen of the Bayt Imani lineage of Rashid Bedouin, pause on their camels by a cluster of bushes beneath a high dune. The camels graze on the bushes. A vast area of sterile, wind-rippled sand fills the foreground. In the far distance dunes stretch out across the horizon.
