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 don't think I have ever been as cold as I was on Saturday, the wind cut like the proverbial 'whetted knife'


but I had to venture out, the woods and fields were singing their siren song, a song I cannot resist.

Admittedly we spent more time in the car than actually walking but we were out and scouting for images on this cold, wintry day.

Twelve images, the total haul, of the twelve two or three made the cut, one is featured here.
