“What breaks in daybreak? Is it the night? Is it the sun, cracked in two by the horizon like an egg, spilling out light?”
~ Margaret Atwood

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. stunning photo!

  2. Beautiful Barbara!

  3. I’ve always admired photography, but never paid close attention until blogging. I love how each photographer has a distinct and singular style. Like painters, or musical composers, you could give a dozen photographers the task of shooting the exact same subject from the same spot, and end up with 12 completely different photographs.

    Your pictures exude a very distinctive warmth, sort of a soft view of the changing earth.

  4. Thanks for stopping by and especially for leaving a comment.
