View of a ruined watchtower on the shore in the town of Ras Al Khaimah. In the foreground fishing nets are spread out to dry on the sand. On the left a watchtower sits on the shore in a state of disrepair. To the right of the watchtower a fisherman sits beneath a drying rack made of wood. Fishing boats are moored in the creek, and in the far distance the Ru'us Al Jibal mountains rise high above 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.
