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. I always love the reflections in water. this one is perfect..

  3. I’m captivated by reflections in the water and this is a really pretty one. nice shot. I love love love how “deep” you made the water.. or how the weight of the photo is actually on the water giving the perception of depth. Nice touch.

    aulloiri Thanks for your comment. I intended to make the water look “deep” bt the placement of the landscape. but I didn’t think about the effects on depth perception. I usually don’t know what I’m technically doing with the composition, I really need to find a nearby class or a set of instructional articles. I rather frame what I like and sometimes I like what I get.

  5. Hi Barbara,

    That is one great photo. I love the composition that you used in it.

  6. wow Barbara, i love this one! very nicely done.
