Rain the the forest – Dyrehaven 16th of May 2011

Recording from Dyrehaven north of Copenhagen 16th of May 2011, afternoon. It was steadily raining but otherwise very quiet in the forest. (I actually like the thought of being able to record at very silence locations).

Add to this regular airplanes, trains and a motorway a little further away. But the birds seemed much quieter than usual…

The setup passed the test with respect to the rain. I had a chance to set it up just before the rain intensified. Rigging up under a large tree with a sloped tree trunk keeps everything quite dry.
