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"

First Light 2010

First Light 2010
Originally uploaded by Alan Norsworthy

Another year over and a new one just begun - Imagine, John Lennon.

The challenge continues, this year the First Light Challenge gauntlet was picked up by Grant, Doug and Cathy, the few who were up and out before dawn. This has become somewhat of a tradition for me and I welcome the company!

This shot was taken in Galt (now part of Cambridge), Ontario and, by the clock on the wall, at just about sunrise, although the sun didn't actually make an appearance.

Happy New Year !!

A fun outing Alan, I have memories and stories from this and past (2 anyway) challenges that I share with those who will listen.
Staying sober on New Years Eve to be Designated Driver to my sons and some friends has made this less of a challenge than it was my first year ;-)
Happy New Year !
