View of a member of Wilfred Thesiger's party at the watchtower at Al Maqta, the stretch of water that separates Abu Dhabi Island from the mainland. One of Wilfred Thesiger's travelling companions, a tribesman of the Bayt Imani lineage of Rashid Bedouin, stands on the shore in the foreground leaning on a camel stick. A large expanse of water fills the area behind him, surrounding a round stone watchtower. In the far background at the right are a number of large rocky outcroppings.
