View of Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan's hunting party at a well in Al Khatam sands near Al Ain. In the near left foreground two camels wait beside a pair of men standing at a well. The man on the right holds onto a rope attached to a pulley on a wooden frame over the well, while beside him a second man points into the foreground. In the background behind them men and camels mill about, waiting for water. In the far distance scattered dots of vegetation grow across the slope of a sand dune. 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.
