View of limestone cliffs on Jebel Hafeet [Jabal Hafit] mountain. Two walls of limestone meet in a ravine in the central foreground. The near cliffs are in shadow, while the far ridge is brightened by the sun. In the far left distance a vast flat plain dotted with vegetation is visible behind the ridge. Wilfred Thesiger spent a week on Jebel Hafeet [Jabal Hafit] hunting Arabian Tahr [Hemitragus jayakari] with Arab and Bedouin guides in April 1948.
