The shore of Loch Ceann Hùlabhaig

Sep 10, 2015, 08:45 AM, Na h-Eileanan an Iar, Scotland

The east end of Loch Ceann Hùlabhaig on the Isle of Lewis is about five miles from the open sea. By the time the sea reach the far corners of the loch it has lost much of its wilder energy and the tides become a silent advance and retreat. Under these circumstances the sounds of a loch side walk are of the wind, flushed waders and footfall on the changing lochside shore – wet seaweed, grass, stones and boulders –there is no hint of the rhythm of the sea. Recorded with a Sound Devices 702T recorder and two DPA 4060 microphones in a Rycote windjammer. Location 58.185899, -6.714926 #shoresounds #walking
