Description

View of a sand fence and date palm grove at a salt flat (sabkha) in Liwa oasis. In the foreground a number of young date palms grow alongside a sand fence constructed from palm fronds. In the salt flat beyond, more date palms grow amongst salt bushes scattered across the flat. In the far distance a second palm fence stretches from the palm grove in the right distance out across the flat.

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.
