Pine cones dropping and landing on a bed of pine needles. This recording was made on a windy day, so there is some background "whooshing" wind; all in all, I think these pine cones softly landing on the needles can be put to good use.
Recording made with my Zoom H4N recorder, with a Rode NTG-2 shotgun microphone. For this recording I literally wanted to get as close as I could, so I placed the shotgun microphone on the ground and carefully let the pine cones fall as close to the microphone as possible, but without hitting it. *Not easy to do. I did edit out some of the direct hits!
Enjoy, and if you ever get the chance to spend a warm afternoon in the peace of a thick stand of pines, you should.
