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. Love the orange with the pinks. Unusual and exquisite color combination. And a surprise bee is always welcome!!!

  2. Gandalf says:

    I love the folds in the petals of the flower.

  3. I love the visitor! What could possibly be more natural than that!

  4. Lovely bee….

  5. Great color combination–that orange and pink! And the bee must have just come from the hive, his pollen sacs are still empty. What a great flower find for the bee!

  6. Whoa – that bee would have freaked me out. But it makes for a great photograph! Such vibrant colors. Makes everything pop out from each other. Very pretty.
