View of limestone cliffs atop Jebel Hafeet [Jabal Hafit] mountain. In the foreground a steep ridge of limestone, mostly bare of vegetation, rises high on the left and slopes down in peaks towards the far right. In the distance below the ridge lies a vast plain dotted with sparse vegetation. Wilfred Thesiger spent a week on Jebel Hafeet [Jabal Hafit] hunting Arabian Tahr [Hemitragus jayakari] with Arab and Bedouin guides in April 1948.
