View of a member of Wilfred Thesiger's travelling party standing in the Al Batin sands during their journey from Al Dhafra sands to Liwa oasis. The man, a tribesman of the Bayt Imani lineage of Rashid Bedouin, stands on the crest of a high dune. He rests a rifle on his shoulder and is holding camel stick. His shadow falls across the sand to his left. A vast expanse of wind-rippled dunes, dotted with a few rare shrubs, spreads out across the distance before him.
