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"

Flight- Ignatius Centre

Yesterday was one of those days ...

One of those days that tell you, in no uncertain terms that the seasons are turning once again.
Across the open fields, the chill wind spoke of Winter but in the groves of tree's the delicate warmth of an ever strengthening sun cut through the chill to warm the body, the mind and the soul.

And flocks of geese fill the skies ...

The signs are everywhere if you only take the time to stop, look and listen.

Yes there maybe another snow storm on the way and my friends in England are tolerating tremendous gales and flooding but the armies of spring are on their way and will not be denied.

"Hark! the hours are softly calling
Bidding Spring arise
To listen to the rain-drops falling
From the cloudy skies
To listen to Earth's weary voices
Louder every day
Bidding her no longer linger
On her charm'd way
But hasten to her task of beauty
Scarcely yet begun".
