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"

I have always been a morning person, well when I grew out of being a teenager..

Even so, as a child my Grandfather, when he was "ashore", would wake me at about 5:30am and we would go for a walk, a long walk.

They are happy memories and that is probably why I enjoy the dawn and long walks now.

What humbugs we are, who pretend to live for Beauty, and never see the Dawn!
