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"

Springtime came back this weekend.
Actually it is more like early summer.
Highs in the mid 20's, brilliant sunshine and barely any clouds.
I know most people yearn for this after a Canadian winter but I'm so thankful that the evening still brings cooler temperatures and If only for a little while sleep will come easy.
Soon the evenings will be as hot as the days and restlessness is the result.
The wheel turns once more ...
You can cut all the flowers but you cannot keep spring from coming. ~Pablo Neruda
