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"

I didn't choose this because it's one of the lonely 'colour' shots.

It's more for the feeling....

This was a glorious spring morning and as Doug said "a great day to be out with friends". There was a great deal of laughter and camaraderie this day. Especially surrounding this shot, that is the memory, those are the feelings.

You are right Doug it was a great day.
Thanks to Andrew and Davey for being there too.
