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.

    nice recording. Not that it matters but, you know ripe cones never fall to the ground naturally, don't you? (they just split open to release seeds)
