Often when we are thinking about peaceful natural scenes we don’t think of wetlands but wetlands can offer a peaceful space and sounds when trying to relax. You know from our previous videos that we provide peaceful scenes like you see in places like CBS’s Sunday Morning Nature Segment and these scenes may remind you of some of those. Wetlands are some of the first places to see foliage changes and since our videos are delayed by several weeks these scenes were shot in early September and you can see colors starting to show up in the foliage!
In filming an upcoming video I couldn’t resist putting together the clips of the rooster crowing as it’s not something you always “see” but nice to hear.
With September coming to a close the weather starts getting colder and having a fire in a fireplace is something that we all look forward to. However, its not always possible to have a fire but having the ambiance is important. This video allows you to have a virtual fireplace going in the background or in the room while you go about your business. This video fireplace features natural sound of a roaring fire! If you listen carefully, you might also pickup the faint sound of a cock ticking off in the distance.
Just a quick video combining some of our favorite timelapses of clouds rolling by. Enjoy!
This week’s video includes segments looking over different lakes in New England. As with most of our videos we capture the natural sound at the time of recording instead of blending in bird sounds or music into the video. I hope you enjoy these peaceful scenes looking over water here in New England!
As summer fades in New England there are some subtle changes that start occurring on the landscape. Most people think of our foliage but other things happen as well. As the temperature cools so does the land and water but they can often be slow to change. When the air is colder than the water fog can form on the water surface. When the air is still like it usually is before dawn it can be quick pretty.
At sunrise and sunset we often miss out on details that come and go by very quickly. Here is a video showing sunrise over a lake in New England in early fall shown in real time. This video has natural sound which allows you to be immersed in the scene and enjoy those details that you might normally miss. Watch how quickly the color in the sky comes and goes and even moves across the sky!
August was a busy month at the Tree of Life. Summer is waning but still at its peak in the beginning of the month and we get to see a full gambit of critters on our Zopu trail cam. In August we saw the usual deer (along with the baby deer we first saw last month!), coyote’s, raccoons, bobcats and even smaller critters like the squirrels.
Here’s another video showing something that we often take for granted – bees pollinating flowers. This is a one hour recording of bees pollinating the flowers on our hydrangea bush. The flowers were in peak bloom and bees were hitting just about everyone. You can even hear the bees buzzing the microphone from time to time. In the background we can see some clouds floating by.
Sometimes we dive by a farm and the cows in a meadow just become something in the background and we miss the beautiful details of cows just being cows eating their way across a meadow. This recording is of a group of cows doing just that – eating their way across a meadow. It gives us an opportunity to listen to the sounds of a meadow with cows in it as they make their way from one side to another.
I tried to edit the sound to eliminate some of the traffic sounds.
There is a something special about evening and nightfall on a summer day in New England. When the sun sets the birds go to sleep and a chorus begins. It can become a background sound but when you stop to hear it it’s a special sound. This is a recording that we completed one summer evening using binaural microphones which gives you an immersive experience with headphones. The recording was extended to 10 hours to provide a background sound for someone looking for something to have on in the background for sleeping, relaxing or meditating.
To make this sound more enjoyable I’ve provided a dark black screen with the sound playing in the background.
