Sunrise in October


October sunrise
Silhouettes of withered weeds
Earth’s cycling seasons

Sunrise taken at Pope Farm, 5 miles west of Madison, Wisconsin

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.

    you are welcome barbara:). I don’t think it was because of hand-holding – i suspect it is something to do with the setings of the camera, but it’s just my opinion. i know how it is when people just say nice picture and so on because i want to improve the quality of my pictures too – i’m a beginer also. and…sorry for my english 🙂 – this is something else i want to improve:). have a nice day.

    and feel free to post any of your sugestions for my photos at
