View of Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan's hunting party riding camels in Al Khatam sands near Jebel Hafeet (Jabal Hafit). In the foreground dry bushes grow scattered across softly rolling sand dunes. In the near distance two members of Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan's hunting party ride across a mound of sand. In the right background two men pause with their camels. Behind them low rolling dunes dotted with sparse vegetation fill the horizon. This image was taken between December 20, 1948, and January 27, 1949, during which time Wilfred Thesiger stayed with Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan in Al Ain and joined him on a number of hunting excursions.
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.
