Ozone Zone Books on C-FAX radio talk show. Book giveaway.

Hello again, just sharing good news.
We were guests on air yesterday, talking about our award-winning book Exotic Gardens of the Eastern Caribbean. It was fun and interesting talk show by Jeff de Jong, celebrated gardening expert on C-Fax radio here in Victoria, Canada. Because C-Fax is an AM station, it was aired in much of Canada and Northwest of USA.
To celebrate this nice surprise, we will be giving away a copy of this fine book getting 5-star reviews on Amazon. One copy went yesterday to a lucky listener – and another one will be given away here, on our blog!

But if you wish to get it, please be patient. We are now preparing and packing for our next photo trip – this time to the tiny Montserrat island!
It has active volcano, and I hope to do some interesting photographs to share with you soon. Back in two weeks!

We will share our travel stories in one of our next postings.
So, please follow us, and add your comment to our NEXT post. Your comment on our NEXT post will be your entry to win our giveaway FREE copy of
Exotic Gardens of the Eastern Caribbean – our thick, beautifully printed coffee table book available globally in better book stores and on Amazon international sites.

Thank you for stopping by, and don’t forget to Follow Us.
And, if you like this idea, SHARE it with friends.
Cheers!
Derek

Greetings from our Caribbean tour

We are touring the Caribbean again, going through several countries – St Lucia, Martinique, Dominica, Grenada, Barbados, Jamaica, Honduras… you name it…
This time our photography and interviews bring us to places designed by a prominent Caribbean architect whose amazong works will be the subject of our third Caribbean book. The title (at least the working title) is The Caribbean Architect, and we believe it will be a fantastic and unusual book. Stay tuned!

The sun is hot, weather tough for photography, as we are witnessing here the worst draught in decades. Usually lush St Lucia is covered with smoke of bush fires, and all plants are yellow, suffering badly. The woter supply on the island is limited. The dull haze always covers the horizon, making all landscape photography very difficult. Still, we are visiting some of the most amazing places worthy the extra effort in photo editing.

So, I would like to show you couple of quick photos from our current locations. The Hibiscus villa is a jewel of traditional Caribbean style, covered with fantastic gingerbread ornamentation. it is a fiesta for the eye. We just photographed it yesterday, while two days ago we did Le Sport, an amazingly elegant, health-oriented resort north of Castries in St Lucia. The photo shows the Moorish style entrance to the spa.

We all hope you will enjoy these photos, and send you greetings from the beautiful Caribbean. I will post some more news we go…
Cheers,
Derek, Margaret, Lex
