View of high rolling dunes in Al Batin sands in the Empty Quarter (Rub' al Khali). Small bushes grown on the right and the left of low dunes in the foreground. Sparse bushes grown on the next row of dunes behind, and in the far distance, more dunes with deeply ridged face rise into 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.
