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 - Everton Falls - Mill Pond Shadows

Everton Falls - Mill Pond Shadows
Originally uploaded by Alan Norsworthy

A difficult choice this weekend. Only because there were few candidates.
The majority of Sunday's photo's were made with Shanghai GP3 shot in my Bronica. The development left an ugly grain so I wasn't to pleased with them.
The Fuji Acros has promise but I need to let them 'mature' for a while before I revisit them. So I picked one of the very few digital shots as my favourite.
Why? The shadows scurrying back across the frozen lake to hide in the woods until the sun went down really caught my eye.
That plus the juxtaposition of the warm palette of tree's and reeds vs the cold blues of the shadows. Makes this image.
