View of a member of Wilfred Thesiger's party standing at the edge of a sabkha in Al Humrah sands during the party's journey to Umm az Zumul. In the foreground a dry abal (Calligonum comosum) grows in wind-rippled sand. In the near distance one of Wilfred Thesiger's Bedouin companions stands on the slope of a dune, looking out over a vast white sabkha (salt flat) lying beyond. He holds a rifle over his shoulder and casts a long shadow over the dune.

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.
