View of Wilfred Thesiger's party crossing a dune in the Al Khatam sands south of Al Ain, on their journey towards Al Humrah sands. On the left two of Wilfred Thesiger's Bedouin companions wait on their their camels while a third member of the party rides over the crest of a dune followed by a baggage camel. On the right a fourth man with another baggage camel rides past two trees growing on the side of the dune. The dune is dotted a few tufts of vegetation.
