The sounds of nature are some of the most evocative sounds we know. These sounds can evoke fear, happiness and relaxation. This week in Found Sounds we want to concentrate on those tranquil natural sounds, taking a listen to the rush and roar of waterfalls.
These beautiful natural occurrences are formed as a stream of water meets a drop in its path. At this point in time we begin to hear a roar as the stream of water crashes into a rock bed, this sound illustrates the immense power of the natural world around us:
In colder climates, this sound may begin to slow over winter. As water sources begin to freeze, the sounds are muted from us. But, as the ice melts, the rush and roar of water falling grows and grows. The user tnewbold captured a great field recording of this:

The tranquil sounds of these natural rushes and roars are a great way to stop, relax and take an interlude in our busy life. I hope it has done this for you today.
