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"

The Old Mill - Redux - Nikon P7100

The Old Mill - Redux - Nikon P7100

There is nothing that stir's the creative juices more than a new toy ... err a new piece of equipment.
On our recent Annual trip up to Tobermory I took along my new Nikon P7100 to put it through its paces.
This image was taken on the way home after the freezing fog and snow had transformed the world into a winter wonderland. Add in a spotlight of sunlight illuminating the frozen tree's it was pure magic.

My quote today is not really a part of this image but the timing is close enough. A thought, a wish, for the New Year..

A happy New Year! Grant that I
May bring no tear to any eye
When this New Year in time shall end
Let it be said I've played the friend,
Have lived and loved and labored here,
And made of it a happy year.
