Description

View of a salt plain in the Empty Quarter (Rub' al Khali) in Al Batin sands region. A ridge of bare dunes in foreground overlooks a vast salt flat (sabkha) dotted with vegetation. More shrubs and bushes grow on the near side of the flat than at the far side, which is bordered by a high ridge of wind-rippled dunes known as dune massifs.

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.
