Description

View of dunes in Al Batin sands in the Empty Quarter (Rub' al Khali). Low, wind-rippled dunes cover a large expanse from the foreground to the peak of a high dune in the far distance. The sands are bare except for a few rare dots of vegetation.

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.
