Description

View of two members of Wilfred Thesiger's travelling party trekking across dunes in Al Khatam or Al Humrah sands south of Al Ain. In the foreground a bare tree grows at the far left in a bare expanse of dark, grainy sand. In the distance beyond two of Wilfred Thesiger's Bedouin companions lead their camels across an expanse of light coloured sand dotted with scattered vegetation, heading towards the right. In the far distance rolling sand dunes rise along the horizon below a cloudless sky.

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.
