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.

    Our conservatory has an orchid exhibit going on right now. I’m hoping to get there next weekend and take some photos. This one is stunning! What an inspiration to me to make that drive out there and get some of my own!

  6. You capture orchids beautifully. Not only this post, but also the others you prevously posted. They are beautiful, delicate looking (but tough) flowers with a unique radiance. You capture that radiance and add new touches.
