Rondeau memories in a calendar

From time to time I have had people ask me about photos, sometimes even stopping me on the trail when they've seen me intently photographing some subject or landscape, asking if I had photos of the park that they could get as memories of their time at Rondeau. As a result, I decided to go out on a limb and produce a calendar, which has been printed locally.

I sorted through many hundreds of images which were taken prior to 2014. The resulting photos were chosen to represent a broad range of subjects, illustrating some of the natural diversity that Rondeau has to offer.

It is a limited edition 2015 calendar, entitled Rondeau...naturally, and is now available at the Friends of Rondeau store in the Visitor Centre during open hours (10 a.m. - 4 p.m.) from Thursday-Sunday until the end of October. It is also available at the Park Office when it is open Monday-Friday (or if you happen to catch it open on a weekend) both now and also after October.

The cost is $17.70 plus taxes, with proceeds going to support park programs.

Here is a preview. Each photo measures ~ 9" X 12", so when it is hanging on the wall it will be ~ 18" X 12". (Please note that the © P. Allen Woodliffe you see in the photos below does not appear on the actual calendar, just here on this blog site.)

January--Ice Shingles
February--Winter Whitetail
March--Great Blue Heron
April--On the Prowl
May--Scarlet Tanager
June--Common Yellowthroat in Song
July--Marsh Magnificence
August--Sunrise over Rondeau Bay
September--Monarch Migration
October--Touch of Autumn
November--Southeast Beach
December--Foggy Morning on Harrison Trail


  1. Allen, a great calendar! I recognized that Scarlet Tanager as the one gracing the 2014 Rondeau Information Guide. I might try to pick one up on my next Rondeau Visit.

    1. Thanks, Dwayne. Yes the Scarlet Tanager already has some profile in the Information Guide.....good for you for noticing. It is such an appealing bird, I thought I would include it on the calendar. I had such an amazing time photographing this bird in the forest of Rondeau I thought I would give it some more profile.
