View of Wilfred Thesiger's travelling party trekking through Al Batin sands during their journey across the Empty Quarter (Rub' al Khali) from Al Dhafra sands to Liwa oasis. Three members of Wilfred Thesiger's travelling party, tribesmen of the Bayt Imani lineage of Rashid Bedouin, ride across small flat plain (sabkha) dotted with sparse tufts of vegetation. Baggage camels follow along behind the men's mounts. Wind-rippled dunes rise in the left background, half darkened with shadows cast by overhead clouds.
