View of Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan's hunting party at a Manasir encampment in the Al Khatam sands near Al Ain. In the foreground four members of Sheikh Zayed's hunting party sit in a group in the sand surrounded by piles of gear. Behind them on the left a saluki sits in the sand nearby three couched camels. Far behind them a herd of camels stands on the top of a sand dune on the left, while in the far right background a girl in a dark abaya leads a camel by the neck.
