This month’s contributors

Matthew Sterne – Limpopo, page 52

Astronomy Photographer of the Year 2018 – page 66

We can’t help feeling a bit starry-eyed when peering into the beyond with the latest astrophotography winners.

Lisa Johnston – Johannesburg, page 74

Forget the crowded restaurants and bin those red roses. With so many unique spaces to explore, there’s no need to resort to clichés this February 14.

Franki Clemens – Lake Como, page 94

With its grand villas and romantic villages, Lake Como is a favoured playground of the rich and famous – but it has a more outdoorsy side too… and a generous supply of gelato.
