View of Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan's hunting party in Al Khatam sands near Al Ain. In the foreground large tufts of qassis (sedge) grow on the slope of a large sand dune. In the far right distance Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan's hunting party rests in a depression at the bottom of a high sand dune amongst large bushes. Behind them in the distance one member of the party stands halfway up the high dune slope, which is dotted with small tufts of vegetation and marked with the party's tracks. 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.
