View of a high dune in Al Batin sands in the Empty Quarter (Rub' al Khali). At the right, two small bushes grow on the slope of a high dune in the foreground. On the left, branches from a dry bush sit in a depression in the sand. In the far distance, behind the dunes, a vast plain in a flat depression is dotted with salt bushes.

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.
