View of dunes in the region of Al Dhafra sands taken during Wilfred Thesiger's journey towards Baynunah. In the central foreground a large bush grows in a depression between two dunes. Tufts of qassis (sedge) grow scattered across the left dune. In the far distance low rolling dunes continue into the far horizon below a cloudless sky. This image was taken during Wilfred Thesiger's journey from Al Ain to Liwa oasis, Al Dhafra and Baynunah sands in November and December 1948.

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.
