“The R44 in South Africa is a provincial route that connect Piketberg to Kleinmond, running past historical towns like Stellenbosch on it’s way to the Atlantic Ocean.
The most spectacular part of this route is between Gorden’s Bay and Betty’s Bay where it winds along the coast through the Kogel Bay region. Sheer cliffs fall into the Atlantic Ocean with the R44 hugging the mountain on winding turns.
This short film covers the scenes I explored; starting at Betty’s Bay, passing Pringle Bay and Rooi Els and ends at the Steenbras River mouth (Gorden’s Bay) with a beautiful green saltwater pool caught between slabs of rock and a full moon rising over the mountain.”
