The Week’s Best Reader Photographs

This week we asked readers to send in photos to show us where they are, and what the sights are where-ever they are. You rose to the occasion and each photo was like a mini-masterpiece. We chose the best one by Thuto Moloi, which you can see below.



At This Is Africa we strive to show Africa and the diaspora the beauty that is this continent. We also love to hear from readers about their experiences, and where they are experiencing us.

This one of a Stellenbosch wine farm by Thuto Moloi is so gorgeous: mood, lighting, view, colours. It has it all and was ticked up by other readers as well. Congratulations Thuto!


Next is Keli Yanga who sent a moody, gorgeous one from Banjul, the Gambia. The tone and feel is lovely:
