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"

Alien Landscape - IR

Alien Landscape - IR
Originally uploaded by Alan Norsworthy

In the early spring I came across this landscape and made an image in black and white, with a pledge to return in the height of summer.
Yesterday I went back with my Nikon D70 and a 720nm IR (Infra Red) filter to record what we cannot see with our eyes.

The quotation this week has been my e-mail tag line for quite a while now and seems appropriate...

In the right light, at the right time, everything is extraordinary. ~Aaron Rose
