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 - Algonquin Birches


Algonquin - Birches

A difficult choice this week, that's why it's posted on Tuesday.
Not that I am so good that I had so many to choose from.
I was trying to find the image that invokes the most powerful feeling.

Isn't this what Algonquin Park is all about?

The silence, a tranquil lake on a warm (ish) spring evening before the screaming hoards (both human and insect) arrive?

Yes, to me this is the essence of Algonquin. This why this is the "Photo of the weekend"

This image does capture the essence of Algonquin Alan. The reflections on the calm waters, this one particular drew my attention, I must have a dozen different compositions of this scene.
