Originally from Northern England, Alan Norsworthy has been a photographer since the late 1960's.

He moved to Canada in 1973 and has made Guelph Ontario his home for the last 24 years.

" I remember visiting the CN Tower in the early 70's and the guide said that as far as you could see in any direction is the best farmland in Canada. That comment echoes down the years as I watch subdivisions eat up the landscape."

The area around Guelph offers up a plethora of rural images which Alan captures with his artistic vision. His work covers everything from macro photographs of flowers, sweeping landscapes, historic buildings and old abandoned farms in both colour and Black and White.

"This is where I find my inspiration, I have a need to show people the beauty I see as I walk the woods and fields of Southern Ontario"

Photo of the weekend - Oct 18

It looks like the fall colours are just about at their peak.I went to visit Balls Falls nr Vineland on Sunday with a crew from the Guelph Photographers Guild

I spent so much time in the woods chasing shadows, literally, I never made it to the top of the falls but I did get to the bottom. :-)

My choice for "photo of the weekend" is not the falls but the old mill located on the property. Autumn in South Western Ontario, I wait all year for this :-)
