What are your favourite sounds?

The Dorset Rambler

Since I am a photographer you might think I am a visual person, and I am.  But I am also very much an audio person and I love sounds, not only music but all sounds – well, perhaps not literally all ;)!!  Many years ago I listed my favourite sounds so I thought I would share some of them with you.

The sound of surf washing over shingle


This is such a beautiful relaxing sound, especially at the end of a long walk as the evening light settles over the coast and everyone has gone home – the time when in the words of the poet, ‘All is left to darkness and to me’.  Sitting in the solitude on one of Dorset’s shingle beaches with the gently washing surf is special.

The sound of the skylark singing on a warm summer day

To me, this is a quintessentially Dorset sound…

    I’d learnt recently from a documentary that there are libraries of animal sounds captured. We might not notice but these add to the visuals we capture on through our lenses!

      I think the problem is we miss a lot of sounds, but if we consciously focus on listening, it’s amazing how many different sounds there are around us.
