Fence and Fog

Fence, Fog © 2008

Life is a brief, small, and transitory phenomenon in an obscure corner, not at all the sort of thing that one would make a fuss about if one were not personally concerned. ~~   Bertrand Russell

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. I love this photo…

  2. Now there’s the rule of thirds put to proper action! Fabulous and beautifully simple image, Bo. Makes me want to sit on the fence and just wait to see what comes over.

  3. I love how the fence tails off into the mist on the left. I feel that some Union or Confederate soldiers should be coming through the mist.

  4. Ron in L.A. says:

    Another great one Bo. And you didn’t want to get up that early that duy, huh? 😉

    R(etc… )

  5. Wow! That is just gorgeous, Bo — beautiful work! I’m with HeyJules on this one — makes me want to prop myself up against one of those fence posts and just ponder for a bit.

  6. I really like the feel of this one Bo! There’s a world of the imagination out in that mist.

  7. Spooky. Could have saved this one for Halloween.

  8. Wow. Wow, wow, wow, wow.

    This picture talks.

  9. I’m so glad to have had your visit today; otherwise, I might never have known about your blog. I LOVE this photo. I’d have this one framed and hanging over my mantle. Such peace.
