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"

Well no photographs, not a single frame taken this weekend.
Last week I came down with the "Man Flu" which is way worse than your everyday normal flu because it seeks out only men as it's victims.
Coughing and hacking does not make for a steady camera, besides I was in bed most of the time.
However, this morning I began to think I might make it and am slowly recovering from the dreaded malady, during my ordeal, my wife did keep me going by texting me "Poor Little Bunny" texts to keep my spirits up
So I went back to the images from my recent Tobermory trip and worked on this one "Storm Watch".
In case you are curious, this is what it's like ...
Caution terrible images not for children, especially boys.
