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"

Winter Sun


The long low light at this time of year is a photographers dream. 
Add in that the tree's are bare, those long beams of golden light can penetrate deep into the woodlands, casting shadows that go on forever.
Wonderful stuff.

However the day did not start out that way, grey clouds covered the sky but with the promise of snow in the forecast I didn't mind. 
The snow never came but the grey remained and made it a struggle to find images. It wasn't until later when we were exploring a new trail that the grey gave way as the low sun made an appearance.

This weeks choice as 'photo of the week' was a quick grab shot as we walked the new trail as the sunlight strengthened.

It may not be my best nor was it carefully considered but it does reflect the feeling as I looked through the winter tree's and saw the clouds breaking up on this fine morning.
