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.

  2. Those are really pretty! You did a great job with them too!

  3. This is a very pretty series. I love the graceful feeling of the drooping petals.

  4. These are really nice captures. I especially like the last photo, dancer of the hula. 🙂

    I’ve got some of these in the backyard. A bit more tame, but the middle is pretty fun to shoot.
