We Interrupt this Vacation to Bring You…

While it is most likely sunny in Mexico – at least it was one week ago when the last several photos were taken – it is not sunny in Wisconsin. But it is quite beautiful with the city covered in layers of ice and snow from last night’s storm.

This frosty landscape was photographed in Owen Conservation Park, Madison, WI early this morning.

Back to the regularly scheduled Caribbean photos tomorrow.

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.

  1. Oh…thanks for this one…I missed the snow for the last few days here in MI and am enjoying having it back!

  2. Wow! Gorgeous. Makes me want to explore that road. ♥

    Ohhhhh – I love it! It’s almost – just almost – making me miss Michigan’s snows. Interestingly, Madison is on my short-list of places I’d live if I ever moved back to the midwest so it’s nice to ‘see’ what it looks like.

    It sure looks cold. Excellent photograph. Glad I found your blog.

  5. Beautiful and inviting!

  6. rather barren and depressing. Reminded me of a Faulkner novel turned inside out. desolation without invitation. Quiet, lonely, a mistake made late in life. Your photographic capabilities are sublime.

  7. To all you snow lovers – thank you. It’s a world of magic, I think.

    Randall – where you see barren, there is life. I see beauty and solitude, not desolation. And not a mistake, a gift. But that is the wonder of photography – you look closely and see what you see and that is how art should be. Thanks for your comment.

  8. Such a stunning photo and I love how you framed this shot! Lighting is perfect that that isn’t easy to do with snow!

  12. It’s a Robert Frost poem!

  13. Barbara,
    That’s a fine capture of the meadow & tree line. I found myself sitting here hiking through it with my eyes. I have been subscribed to you for a while now and genuinely enjoy your posts. Thank you. Dobry Den.
