The world’s largest uninterrupted sand mass, the Rub Al Khali (Empty Quarter) will blow you away with massive expanses of awesome desert and enormous dunes. It’s a landscape of ever-changing endless dunes made famous by the British explorer Wilfred Thesiger and his Emirati and Omani companions in the 1940s and 50s.
Reading the flow of a sand dune is a real skill when trying to drive through the desert. From an artist points of view am fascinated by the different structures, layers and textures, and the beauty of desert dunes. Jan 2007.
