December 27th, 2012

Starting calm. Wind 2-4 bft but with peaks up to 6 bft along a river with bare trees.
Small waves because the wind is coming from ashore.
No human activity on the river because it's the first day after Christmas and everyone is resting.
Just a few people walking around.
In the beginning three swans fly right over my head.
Because it is winter and the strong wind there are not many birds around.
Some far traffic audible and people walking the dyke sometimes.
Great to hear the wind trough the naked branches. A complete different sound than when the carry leaves.

Remark; The wind was so strong sometimes that it was impossible to find a spot to hide my gear for it properly. I had to weigh the tripod with a pole. I went there because the river is rising caused by all the rain of the last few weeks. I hope the dikes will hold. Otherwise I will play Hanse Brinker with his magic finger. ;-)

    Thank you, thank you Philip for the compliment.

    When I was recording I forgot to monitor. When I came home I was disappointed by the rumbling. Putted the track in the trashcan. Later I went back on the track and listened it an other time and realized that this mistake was better than I wanted and putted online.

    So you see, a mistake sometimes becomes a hit ;-)

    This is an excellent background sound for me when working at the computer - very nice!

    Incidentally, because you have succeeded so well in avoiding wind noise in the microphones, it is difficult to feel that the conditions really are windy. As I have found out with my own recent recordings, for natural soundscape recordings where wind is part of the picture, a certain degree of unapologetic wind noise in the microphones has generally been best, because, after all, it was then reflecting more faithfully what one actually hears, which includes the rumbling / 'drumming' of wind in one's ears.

    Anyway, thank you, Marcel, for yet another really nice recording, and keep up the great work!
