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"

Upstream - Elora Gorge

Upstream - Elora Gorge

Elora, it's one of those places that can be visited over and over and still there is something new to see, experience and to photograph.
This weekend a friend and I decided it was about time we got back into our old ways of heading out early, before sunrise.
Our destination was Elora Gorge, we had decided to try to capture the dawn as it played across and down the Gorge sides.

The amazing thing is how quickly scenes change and how quickly they are gone forever.

However, they are replaced by new scenes :-)

Photographers deal in things which are continually vanishing and when they have vanished there is no contrivance on earth which can make them come back again. ~Henri Cartier-Bresson
