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"

The snows lie deep after yet another storm.

BBQ Weather

The snows lie deep after yet another storm.

Normally I would be out enjoying this weather but
I am at home recovering after surgery this last week.

Still it doesn't mean I cannot record an image or two. My 'Photo of the Week' this week was taken through the window..
An image of my BBQ, sculptured by Winters hand.

As my tag line on my email says "In the right light, at the right time, everything is extraordinary." ~Aaron Rose

This is especially true in winter.
The landscape is transformed into a world of black and white. Mother Natures colourful palette has been put away and replaced with charcoal, pencil and ink.
No less beautiful, just different if you have the eyes to see....

'[W]hat a severe yet master artist old Winter is.... No longer the canvas and the pigments, but the marble and the chisel'. ~John Burroughs, "The Snow-Walkers," 1866
