Profile portrait of 'Amair bin 'Omar, one of Wilfred Thesiger's travelling companions, riding a camel in the vicinity of the Ramlat Unayq, near the Dhahir mountains north of Al Ain. The party is travelling from Al Ain to Jabal Sumeini. 'Amair bin 'Omar, a tribesman of the Bayt Imani lineage of Rashid Bedouin, rests on his camel. His camel stands on a clump of sedge on the side of a sand dune. 'Amair bin 'Omar's face is shaded from the sun by his ghutra (headscarf) which is wrapped closely around his head. A few tufts of vegetation grow on the dune's slope behind him.
