Stalking the Clouds

Stalking the Clouds Ā© 2008 Bo Mackison

This is central Illinois. Corn and farms. And more corn. Some soybeans. A small town here and there. And a city of moderate size once in awhile. And more corn. I grew up in west central Illinois. I grew up in a river city on the Mississippi – and still was surrounded on the other three sides by corn.

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. It’s endless. The cornfields go on forever. Love the repetitive pattern and texture. Nice!

  2. Looks similar to where I live.

    Great shot, Bo. It does seem to stretch on forever.

  3. It does me good to see that, Bo!

  4. The vastness is imposing. But to my eyes, it’s quite lovely.

  5. Yesterday, Preston and I were out and about in the country and all was corn… more corn… and yet more corn. Cornfields as far as the eye could see. Your lovely photo is a familiar sight. šŸ™‚

  6. I love corn,but I think that might be a bit too much for even the greatest Lover of that stuff šŸ˜‰

  7. I love the repetition.
