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"

Dawn ...

I've always been a morning person.
Watching the sun rise on a new day is deeply satisfying.
To do it 'out there', in a frozen field of a meadow full of flowers is even more satisfying.
Now most would disagree but that's OK I like the wild places to be empty.

Around here, within a half hour drive, we have so many choices for an early morning walk.
Blessed” is the word I guess.

Yesterday was one such morning, Fletchers Creek was the location. 20 min from home and a bit of a walk as the sky lightened we found a spot and watched the sun crest the distant tree's painting the sky with an ever changing palette.
In about 5 minutes it was all over but what a five minutes !

I’ll tell you how the Sun rose—
A Ribbon at a time....”
~Emily Dickinson, c.1860
