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"

Lone Pine Sunrise

It was the night of the 'supermoon', these news people really get carried away don't they!

Well it started off as a Moon set trip. I knew where I wanted to go and when. Unfortunately a bank of cloud put paid to that idea....
So when you are given lemons you make lemonade, so I waited for the sunrise instead.

I must be getting soft or getting used to the above zero temperatures. The temperature was only -7c but my hands were so stiff I could hardly work the camera. It was only a couple of weeks ago I was scoffing at the "glove wearers" ....

Happy vernal equinox

It was one of those March days when the sun shines hot and the wind blows cold: when it is summer in the light, and winter in the shade. ~Charles Dickens
