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"

Winter requires a certain attitude.
Do not regret the passing of Autumn, you have to look forward to it's passing and
find your sweaters,jackets and boots.
Think of that magical, first frost that will soon cover the meadows with silver.
Think not of the falling temperatures but of the cool, crisp, air and the walks to be enjoyed.
Then get out there and savour the peace, as the snow falls, blanketing the earth in silence.
It's a time to be young again.
Winter came down to our home one night
Quietly pirouetting in on silvery-toed slippers of snow,
And we, we were children once again.
