View of two members of Wilfred Thesiger's travelling party at a well in Al Batin sands. In the left foreground one of Wilfred Thesiger's Rashid Bedouin companions stands with two camels next to the opening of a well. In the central foreground another man stands behind a large camel in front of a few salt bushes growing on a sand dune. In the far distance salt bushes grow scattered across a vast salt flat bordered by high dunes. This image was taken during Wilfred Thesiger's journey from Al Ain to Liwa oasis, Al Dhafra and Baynunah sands in November and December 1948.

Due to the nature of these images, prints will reproduce any signs of age, wear or damage that occurred before they were archived by the Pitt Rivers Museum.
