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"

Elora Urbex - Sisters

This is what makes urbex and rurex adventures so rewarding.
Hidden away in the dusty, dark, recesses of the upper floor of an old abandoned church I found this.
Of course after photographing it we left it where we found it.
Our intent is not to steal or destroy, simply to record what will all to soon be gone.
