View of one of Wilfred Thesiger's guides standing on a rocky valley slope in Jebel Hafeet [Jabal Hafit] mountain. A man wearing a thobe (long shirt) and ghutra (headscarf) stands on a large rock in the right foreground. He holds a rifle in his left hand. A few bushes grow among the large rocks surrounding him. In the background the far slope of the valley rises into high limestone peaks in the distance. Wilfred Thesiger spent a week on Jebel Hafeet [Jabal Hafit] hunting Arabian Tahr [Hemitragus jayakari] with Arab and Bedouin guides in April 1948.
