Thunder Shower

July 18, 2014, is World Listening Day.

At around 18:00 dark clouds appeared, and we had a brief shower. When I heard thunder, I dashed out to my front parch with a microphone and a recorder. I missed a few loud claps of thunder, but I managed to record a few minutes of rain and thunder as the storm receded to the east.

Yasugawa Small Rapids

July 18, 2014, is World Listening Day.

In the morning I went to Shinjo-cho in Moriyama. The water level was very low, but I did some fishing and caught a few hasu. I also made a short field recording of small river rapids, a crow, a Japanese bush warbler, and other sounds.
