Sounds of Nature

When I was in middle school I was first discovering the wonders of pirating music and I began exploring the variety of different auditory delights that the internet had to offer. Not only was I checking out all different kinds of music, but I also began listening to ambient audio files of nature to relax. It was one of my favorite things to listen to at the time. Since then I have gone through several computers, lost all of those files, and forgot about just sitting back and listening to nature. Well no more!

I’m going on a spree of downloading the Echoes of Nature series, which consists of recordings of various locations such as the beach, thunder storm, forest, etc. Right now I am listening to Dr. Roger Payne’s 1970 recordings of Humpback Whale songs and I have to say that they are incredible. The variety of noises they can make are just astounding and beautiful. It has reawakened my appreciation for the creatures — an appreciation haven’t felt this intensely since going on a whale watch in Maine a couple of years ago.

I know what I’m going to be listening to before sleeping for a while.

This is truly an amazing collection of photos. I want to see that National Geographic documentary now!
