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"

After The Storm - Forsythia

After The Storm - Forsythia
Originally uploaded by Alan Norsworthy

Spring is supposed to be here but no-one told winter ….

At the end of the week we had a tremendous winter storm, as it passed everything was coated in a thick sheet of ice.
Ever since I can remember I have loved storms, howling gales, lashing rain and crashing seas were all part of my childhood and when a storm brews on the horizon I am taken back to those times.

Nothing beats a good storm …..

For the man sound in body and serene of mind there is no such thing as bad weather; every day has its beauty, and storms which whip the blood do but make it pulse more vigorously. ~George Gissing, "Winter," The Private Papers of Henry Ryecroft, 1903
