Description

View of desert landscape taken during Wilfred Thesiger's journey from Masruq well to Al Hubi village. In the foreground a few small bushes grow on the slopes of high dune. In the distance beyond a few low sand dunes sit on a vast flat plain, which continues uninterrupted from the near distance to the far 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.
