View of one of Wilfred Thesiger's Arab guides standing on a rock atop Jebel Hafeet [Jabal Hafit] mountain. In the foreground an Arab man wearing a thobe (long shirt) and ghutra (headscarf) stands on the left at the side of a gap between rocky peaks at the top of Jebel Hafeet [Jabal Hafit]. He holds a rifle over his shoulder and looks out into the far distance. In the foreground a few bushes grow from crevices between the rocks. A plain dotted with sparse vegetation and a few low limestone ridges lies in the far distance. Wilfred Thesiger spent a week on Jebel Hafeet [Jabal Hafit] hunting Arabian Tahr [Hemitragus jayakari] with Arab and Bedouin guides in April 1948.
