Dancing Skirts

Oriental Poppy

Oriental Poppy

More poppies, but taken at a different time of the day. These poppies were photographed in the early morning light, and they took on a shimmering, papery translucency.

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. Beautiful poppy in its ‘dancing skirt’. There is something about a bunch of poppies shimmering in the light. One of my favorite flowers. 🙂

  3. I think early light is better than late light for both flowers and people! This is great. The color has a lot of depth to it for being in th orange family…

  5. Very pretty and aptly named. 🙂

    I don’t usually wear skirts (more the jeans & t-shirt type), but I’d gladly wear one that looked as pretty as a poppy.

  15. Maybe I’ll give myself a push, and try it. What do I have to lose…

    Beautiful flower and enjoyable commentary. If I were to step out in an orange skirt, I’d need to call it a kilt (and that would be one wild kilt).
