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"

There is something about Haiku that totally relaxes the mind. 
Maybe it's the simplicity of structure or the lack thereof...

All I know is when I read it there is a mental sigh and everything seems, for that moment anyway, perfect.

Haiku and Autumn in the woods seem to go together so well, so this weeks "Photo of the week" blends very nicely with this weeks choice of words...

So sit back, read and re-read this the most simple form of poetry and let it wash over you..

falling leaves
hide the path
so quietly
~John Bailey, "Autumn," a haiku year, 2001,
