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 - Schneider Flats - Cedar Fencepost I

Schneider Flats - Cedar Fencepost I
Originally uploaded by Alan Norsworthy

Twice this weekend I visited Schneider Flats. The days could not have been more different, Sunday morning was foggy and cool, today was baking hot.
I'll take foggy and cool any day !

After the dog walkers left all that remained was the silence and the occasional bird call. As I walked back to the car i realized how much my pace had slowed.
It was if my body was saying "stay awhile"

We are lucky to have places such as this.
