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. This is another great photo!

  2. It is as if I can feel the crunch of the snow under my feet as I walk along this very road, alone in my thoughts – you have captured a moment in my heart. I wish to reach out and feel the dried grass as it brushes my legs as I walk by, my eyes fixed on the road ahead to a point in my destination.

    Beautiful photo Barbara – it allows me to experience a moment that is not there. Thank you!

  3. Wonderful colors in this shot!

  4. Once again you captured a mysterious mood..what lies beyond, deep in the mist? You paint with your lense.

  5. Very nice. I love the shot of brown color against what looks to be a Black and White photo.

  6. I LOVE this photo. Yes, it’s the contrast isn’t it that really works. Beautiful and powerful all at once.
