Winter Sounds -1

Sound_of_winter_1

Somewhere behind the silence of the snow and lodgepole pines is the sound of clear blue sky. Winter has a special silence that you can hear if you take the time to listen. Yellowstone National Park, Jan 2015.

  1. I agree, it’s a very special (no-)sound, which I love very much. Like a muffled silence, where all other sounds you can occasionally hear seem to be very far away, even if they are not. Voices (if there are any) and every other sound like the snapping of a branch or bird chirping carry far and seem to hover in the air.
    At a beach, sounds can be very similiar (concerning the muffled atmosphere), but it’s of course a totally different setting. πŸ™‚

    1. Yes that feeling that the forest and snow are absorbing all that is distracting. I think it is this silence that allows our brains to actually hear because we have so much brain power available since we are not using it to block out the excess noise.
