Description

Portrait of Wilfred Thesiger's travelling party gathering water from a well at the southern end of Jabal Hafit (Jebel Hafeet). In the foreground four men stand in a well that is lined with sticks and tree branches. Two of the men are passing bags of water towards the right foreground. Behind the well three members of the party pour out water for a pair of waiting camels.
