View of an Arab man, a retainer in Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan's hunting party, with a camel in the sands near Al Ain. In the near distance an Arab man stands next to a couched camel. Equipment and supplies lie in the sand to the right of the camel. In the distance beyond scattered vegetation grows on a vast dry plain. In the far distance high cliffs, likely those of Jebel Hafeet (Jabal Hafit), rise high above the horizon in the far background.

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.
