View of a member of Wilfred Thesiger's travelling party trekking through Al Batin sands, near Liwa oasis, in the Empty Quarter (Rub' al Khali). The man, a tribesman of the Bayt Imani lineage of Rashid Bedouin, rides his camel across a softly sloping dune. A baggage camel, tethered to the back of his mount, follows behind him. In the foreground a few bushes grow in the sand. In the far distance at the left a salt flat (sabkha) lies below a high dune massif rising along the horizon.
