View of one of Wilfred Thesiger's guides atop Jebel Hafeet [Jabal Hafit] mountain. In the foreground an man wearing a thobe (long shirt) and ghutra (headscarf) walks across a flat rocky area towards the right. He holds a rifle in his right hand and has another slung under his shoulder. In front of him a jagged peak of limestone juts out of the mountain on the left continues in a low ridge across the near distance to the right. In the far distance is a vast flat plain marked by lines of sparse vegetation. Wilfred Thesiger spent a week on Jebel Hafeet [Jabal Hafit] hunting Arabian Tahr [Hemitragus jayakari] with Arab and Bedouin guides in April 1948.
