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"

Fields of Silver

I love this time of year!

On Saturday my friends and I took an early morning walk along the Niska Road Trail. The fields were covered in hoar frost and everything was encrusted in tiny jewels that reflected and refracted the early morning light.

Every turn held scenes of Mother Natures handiwork, the hard part was to capture it.

All too soon the sun peaked the hills and treetops and, with that first kiss of warmth, it all vanished.

Photographers deal in things which are continually vanishing and when they have vanished there is no contrivance on earth which can make them come back again. ~Henri Cartier-Bresson
