June 19th, 2012

This recording taken on 17th June 2012, with Sony PCM-M10 using internal mics with Rycote Mini Windjammer, from a quite exposed position on Beeny Cliff, not far from Boscastle, Cornwall, UK. This is at a point where the original and very exposed section of the coast path had been abandoned and a less exposed diversion established, but here I got onto that exposed bit, where the sea is undercutting the cliffs.

Because it is relatively deep sea here against the cliff, you don't get the sound of breaking waves, but instead, with the gentle swell on this day, you get a constant gentle rippling and splashing. With a bigger swell it sounds more interesting. Unfortunately the best spot for this sound was rather catching the breeze, and the Mini Windjammer was only a partial protection.

Please note that the volume level of this recording has been carefully adjusted for listening purposes, and ALL my recordings so far are meant to be listened to with a volume setting that would give a realistic level for playback of CLASSICAL music (a large but not exceptional symphony orchestra). If you have the right volume setting, you should not need to change that setting from one recording of mine to another.
