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"

To some, it can be a humbling experience, to others just a walk with friends...
I'm sure that Doug will agree that an outing with Patrick is always the former.
Yesterday the "Three Amigo's" met at the Arboretum in the U of G.
The softly falling snow was really a harbinger of things to come, that is why Doug was home instead of in Tobermory.
So the "Three Amigo's" rode again.
A wonderfully soft morning, the biting cold had abated at least for a few days, the snow deep the light perfect, the banter warming.
We wandered the woods waiting for images to present themselves.
Coming together, drifting apart, watching, looking, feeling, waiting...
"While there is perhaps a province in which the photograph can tell us nothing more than what we see with our own eyes, there is another in which it proves to us how little our eyes permit us to see". ~Dorothea Lange
