|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|Gamskaskloof is one of the most rugged gravel roads in South Africa which winds through 40 Km of mountain scenery, culminating into the single - width Elands Pass, and terminates in the extremely hot low altitude Gamkaskloof which is nicknamed The Hell. There are 201 very tight bends, curves and corners along the entire route. It is a very exhausting trip as one can not loose concentration, there are a few stopping areas throughout the beautiful drive. The warning sign at the top states about 2 hours to complete the 37Km route.|

This is a very special image from your film photography days. Two hours to cover 37km! And before there was a better access road people lived in virtually total isolation in the valley of The Hell. A real meaningful contribution. Please, if you have, also show us some images from down at the bottom of what it looked like during those years.
A different style from you, I like this, the b&w is a good choice.
Interesting lines, good composition.
Just to think places like these still exist in the current world. Would not attempt to drive there if I had no 4x4. An image that can relate to "a lot of stories to tell".
