Description

View of a ruined watchtower on the shore in the town of Ras Al Khaimah. In the foreground a rolled up fishing net lies on the sand. Further beyond a watchtower in a state of disrepair sits on the shore. To the right of the watchtower a fisherman sits below a drying rack made of wood. On the far right many nets are spread out to dry in the sand. In the far distance the Ru'us Al Jibal mountains rise high above the horizon on the far side of a creek.

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.
