View of Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan's hunting party unloading camels in Al Khatam sands near Al Ain. Four men and a young boy (centre left) unload couched camels in the midst of a vast flat plain dotted with scattered clumps of vegetation. In the centre a man holding a rifle stands beside a couched caeml. Behind him three members of the party, including a little boy, remove the saddles from three more couched camels while a man in the far back left, next to a standing camel, looks on. In the distance behind them a vast rocky sand flat stretches into the far horizon. 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.
