View of Wilfred Thesiger's travelling party in the Al Batin sands during their journey across the Empty Quarter (Rub' al Khali) from Al Dhafra sands to Liwa oasis. A member of Wilfred Thesiger's travelling party, a tribesman of the Bayt Imani lineage of Rashid Bedouin, stands at the left with three camels in a depression below a high dune. At the centre two camels walk along the crest of a small sand dune, while at the far right one camel walks towards a low flat plain dotted with vegetation.
