View of Wilfred Thesiger's travelling party resting at the top of a dune in Al Batin sands during their journey across the Empty Quarter (Rub' al Khali) from Al Dhafra sands to Liwa oasis. Two members of Wilfred Thesiger's travelling party, tribesmen of the Bayt Imani lineage of Rashid Bedouin, stand beside a number of camels, one of which is couched. A third member of the party rides his mount in the further distance, followed by a baggage camel. In the distance behind the men is a salt flat (sabkha), bare of all vegetation, and another ridge of high, sheer-faced dunes. A few light clouds hang in the sky.
