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. The essence of a Midwestern Fall morning.

  4. Frost on the seedheads–a sure sign of winter coming on. Lovely!

  5. Nice. I like the simplicity, composition and muted colors

  6. I know it is a sign of colder things to come but… don’t you just love the way everything looks when it’s sugar-coated in the mornings?

  7. Beautifully composed. I really like the muted colors in this.

  8. Let it frost, let it frost, let it frost!
