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.

Due to the nature of these images, prints will reproduce any signs of age, wear or damage that occurred before they were archived by the Pitt Rivers Museum.
