Seems like my first Saturday at home in ten weeks should call for a celebration. In honor of summer and sunshine and flowers and July and family and celebrations, here is a photo I’ve experimented with. Having some fun in the sun, this is one psychedelic coneflower.

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.

  2. Wow….takes me back to my tie-dye days, Bo. Love the way you experimented here!

  3. Very cool effect!! Love the effervescent color and light!

    • Thanks, Marcie. Don;t think it;s going to become my signature photography, but it’s fun to play some of the time. It was a popular card at my last art fair…

  4. Love the effect created here.

  5. Wow–it’s the 60s colors–a black light cone flower! Beautiful!
