Description

View of date palms growing in a depression in Liwa oasis. On the left a grove of young date palms grows in a depression below a high ridge of sand. A few tufts of vegetation grow on the slope of the ridge behind the palms. Beyond the dune ridge, a large salt flat (sabkha) covered with salt bushes stretches out into the distance. In the far distance the edge of the flat meets a large wind-rippled dune massif.

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.
