A quiet evening by a small mountain lake at about 5100 feet elevation. The lake is surrounded by pine forest and mountains. There are some mergansers on the lake, one or two flying around a bit and other birds having a brief time of activity just before darkness.
This is a quiet recording because nature is quiet. For best results listen with headphones.
Recorded with Sennheiser MKH 8020 stereo pair into a modified Marantz PMD 661 and edited with Tracktion.
