Frosty Morning Handiwork

Queen Anne with Frosty Lace

Queen Anne’s Frosty Lace ©2008 Bo Mackison

Here’s the Queen with a bit of decorative hat. There is beauty even in the changes of the seasons, though I am fond of autumn’s color and mildness, and haven’t yet had my fill. I will have to keep autumn’s memory close by being satisfied with the photographs that stay – no matter how wild the weather gets outside.

About Bo Mackison

I'm a photographer, book-artist, traveler, naturalist, and creator of the Contemplative Creatives Journey, An Online Workshop and Community and Desert Wisdom Cards and Workshops. Though often not well known, I find the desert a welcoming place - a healing space. Its mysteries and gifts transformed me several years ago. Since that first encounter, I return again and again to fill my well in what most people think of as a desolate region. I'd love to share my desert discoveries and wisdom with you. Please subscribe to receive my five part mini email course The Gifts of the Desert. It's my gift to you.


  1. well taken photos- the snow frosted flowers and the changing color of the autumn leaves-the beauty of nature’s effect, which we do not experience over here in the tropics.I still remembered some winter photos that you posted, the snow-covered surroundings and it is going to be a year soon. my wife had been in wisconsin about 20 years ago. she loves the beautiful winter scene and it is still fresh in her memory

  2. I, too, love autumnal colors and early winter’s frosting. Beautiful photos.

  3. Beautiful capture of the frost on the flowers, and a very interesting shadow in the yellow leaves.

  4. Luckily, our plants don’t look like that yet. But somehow, you managed to make it lovely!

  5. The frosted photos are so lovely. I rarely get to see icy sights like that living so far south. Our plants are usually only frosted with dew.

    Always Growing

  6. The leaf photos- both up there ^ and down here /

    they’re awesomy.

  7. Really nice captures, Bo, and I love the top one. We’re supposed to have a hard and heavy frost tomorrow morning, and I may be out and about looking for frosty stuff to photograph. 🙂

  8. Nice shots. I’ve been trying to figure out where they were shot, You have them tagged as Madison, Wisconsin. Is that the location?

  9. They look sugar-coated..and I can’t believe you already have frost!!!!

  10. These are lovely shots. 🙂

  11. That’s really frosty. I love the photo of the Queen Anne Lace.

  12. So many beautiful and interesting photos..I couldn’t decide where to leave a note.
    I kept coming back to these though! They look as though they were dipped in tiny, tiny diamonds…no art can duplicate the beauty that continually unfolds around us…eh?

    Thank you for sharing your world, Bo.

    Healing energies and peace of heart to you.
