View of three members of Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan's hunting party in Al Khatam sands near Al Ain oasis. In the foreground a large plant grows in a patch of bare sand. Behind on the left a number of camels are couched in the sand, while further behind another camel stands. On the right one of Sheikh Zayed's falconers walks past a large bush holding a cloth sack. Behind him two other members of the party are seated in the sand on either side of a resting falcon. In the background tufts of vegetation grow across a vast sand flat below a sky dotted with a few low clouds.

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.
