View of one of Wilfred Thesiger's Bedouin companions resting under a tree in Al Ain / Buraimi oasis. In the near distance a Bedouin man stands in a small patch of shade beneath a tall tree in an expanse of sand. Behind him a second tree grows, leaning heavily to the right. In the distance more bushes and trees stretch out across flat sands.
