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. nice picture! i love the angle and the balance of the picture. πŸ™‚

  2. Your images are becoming softer lately, Bo. (Or so it seems to me.) I know the word “beautiful” keeps appearing in most of my comments and I hate to overuse it for fear that it will lose meaning, but they truly are beautiful.

    Like the first commenter, I love the angle.

      My photography does seem to be evolving, Robin. Thank you for saying so. I’ve been using my 50 mm with a 2x teleconverter for some of the botanicals. Lots of challenges. But lots and lots of enjoyment!

    This is beautiful for sure…. the perspective really brings forth the flower. πŸ™‚

  4. Bo Mackison says:

    Yes, almost as if it’s leaning forward, trying to peek and see out. Thanks.

  5. Exquisite detail here…and what wonderful framing. By the way..I’ve been meaning to comment on your new blog format. Very nice. Especially love how you’re responding to people’s comments. Nice touch!!!

    I won’t use “beautiful” – how about delightful? I did enjoy the image.

  7. I sure like that composition and the pink color makes the whole shot! Just lovely!

    • Bo Mackison says:

      Thanks, Montucky. Pink isn’t really a color I prefer, but I’ve had great luck with that color this spring.

  8. Very soft, and pink, beautiful and delightful. Just to sum up a few comments in one. Hehe. But I have to say some of the tulips photos, along with this one, are my favorites. Who knew pink had a good quality? You captured it!
