On our evening walk through the University of Wisconsin-Madison Arboretum, we didn’t see much in the way of green, but the skies were quite blue, and the pond provided a lovely reflection of early springtime.

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. I love those ponds just as much this time of year as in mid summer. There’s always something either going on or about to happen. That’s a nice shot!

    Nice shot with the reflective ponds. I love ponds any time of the year to wander around and photograph. 🙂

  3. There’s something so soothing about the soft browns and blues of early spring. Beautiful!!!

  4. I really do like the reflection, appears as a picture within a picture.

  5. Wowsies! You know I am attracted to woods and ponds and reflections of the sky – this is sooooooo calling my name! Beautiful, Bo!

  6. Well the green is back now.. spring has sprung.
