View of three members of Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan's hunting party riding in Al Khatam sands near Al Ain. In the near distance three men ride camels in a line across a vast flat plain from the near left to the far right background, followed by a saluki hunting dog. The plain is dotted with scattered clumps of vegetation and a few low mounds of sand. Behind them a ridge of low dunes borders the flat in the far distance. 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.
Due to the nature of these images, prints will reproduce any signs of age, wear or damage that occurred before they were archived by the Pitt Rivers Museum.
