View of dunes along the eastern edge of the Ramlat ar Rabbad. In the foreground the crest of a sand dune stretches from left to right. A few tufts of vegetation grow in the sand below the crest. In the left background ridges of rolling dunes border a vast flat expanse of flat sand stretching out into the far distance on the right.

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.
