View of dunes in Al Batin sands in the Empty Quarter (Rub' al Khali). A low dune slopes down into the foreground. A few small bushes cling to its left face. Beyond this first ridge a higher dune rises at the right. In the far background more wind-rippled dunes, dotted with sparse points of vegetation, fill the horizon.

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.
