Description

View of a man leading three camels across Al Maqta, a ford between Abu Dhabi and the mainland. In the foreground man wades through shallow water, leading three camels behind him. In the distance a tall circular stone watchtower sits in the middle of the ford, while in the far distance a low rocky outcrop runs along the horizon.
