Bowen Islander Marian Bantjes on intricate beauty by design . This was her TED talk given in February of this year.
We are surrounded by brilliant people on this island.
In the winter when the snow comes on the edge of the wet southeast winds chilled by the powerful outflow Squamish winds the days are dark and cold. When the weather passes and the skies clear this is the view that steals the breath of islanders no matter how long you have loved here. The Brittania Range is coated in heavy snow and the thin sun is hitting that eastern wall of our inlet on a sharp angle. The white of the mountains and the blues of the sky and sea.
