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"

Serendipity - Sunflowers

Serendipity - Sunflowers
Originally uploaded by Alan Norsworthy

We were wandering the back roads this morning when we saw a lady frantically waving from the side of the road.
I stopped, she said "have you seen the sunflowers?" (frantically pointing over her shoulder).
In truth I would have driven right by. Thank you Margaret-Ann for pointing the way !

The flower offered of itself
And eloquently spoke
Of Gods
In languages of rainbows
And secret silence...
