Wintry Road

Madison Wisconsin

Madison Wisconsin

Not much conversion needed to turn this (slightly) color photograph into a black and white. The road leads into Owen Conservation Park, and the park is always a good bet to visit, even in the midst of a blizzard. Snow plows are stored in sheds in the park, and so its road is one of the first to get plowed.

The last time I stuck my yardstick into the side yard, the snow measured a good 16 inches in depth. So the browns of November are now the whites of December.

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 see a new header PIX. Very seasonal. The wood has certainly filled up with snow. Good for skiing.

    Hey Bo, Merry Christmas and this is a beautiful photograph which makes me a bit homesick as we used to get heavy falls of snow like this in Scotland where I used to live. Hope you are well and please keep in touch.
