Tangled, too focused, not enough color.

Photographs can be self-portraits.

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. Amazing capture. I shot something similar a year back. Your allusion to self-portraiture is apt.

    This is my first time here (thank you, amuirin), you have a great eye.

    I think your statement about self-portraits may be more true than we realize!

    I love the lines that the trees make against the sky and snow.

  4. Many faceted and coy would be a good additions to the description. You see many paths to the end of the picture, but enough is hidden so you cannot get a complete picture of the distant image.

  5. Neat idea and yes, I can relate!

  6. Well, I see a lot of art and originality and meaning in what you dub ‘tangles’. So there.

  7. It really caught my eye. It so reminds me of how my days can feel at times. You have some great photos 🙂
