Prairie View, Macro Style

Prairie View, Macro Style © 2010 Bo Mackison

Sun low on the horizon. Just before it drops from my view, it casts its golden light on a tiny bit of this remnant prairie. Still autumn on the prairie.

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.

      It’s that lovely golden autumn sulight — right before the sun sets, it gives such great colors. I so love those few precious moments.

      It is good to focus on the sunlight in autumn. I love it’s golden hues, but it won’t be here for long. 🙁

  3. That’s such a warm and pleasant photo, Bo. I love the color tones.

    My favorite part of autumn is the lighting just before sunset. So golden, so inviting.
