Description

View of a high dune in Al Batin sands in the Empty Quarter (Rub' al Khali). A high dune with a steeply sloping face rises in the foreground. It is bare except for two small bushes clinging to the slope at the near left. In the far distance a vast salt flat (sabkha) dotted with salt bushes spreads out in a flat depression behind the dune. Beyond the salt flat is another ridge of high dunes.


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.
