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"

It was one of those days ...

No photo of the week this week but there is a drawing of the week ...

Everyone is watching, looking keen eyed at the landscape and waiting impatiently for Spring to arrive.

Walking the trails with Winter (the dog) this morning you can hear it in the chirping chorus, you can see it in the green sprouts uncovered by the receding snows but you can't feel it in the wind!
Here winter (the season) still reigns supreme, her icy fingers play around the the openings of your jacket, probing for an opening to send shivers down your spine...

At this time of year the promise of Spring has yet to be fulfilled as Winter hangs on in the shady places and everything waits and watches.

"It was one of those March days when the sun shines hot and the wind blows cold: when it is summer in the light, and winter in the shade". ~Charles Dickens, Great Expectations
