Caves Beach NSW
Sennheiser MKH 60
Boom pole array
The weather continues to get warmer and in fact we have a beautiful sunny morning to celebrate the 1st day of spring (Opposite seasons to the Northern Hemisphere remember :-) ) We went for a walk along the beach to see the caves that give caves beach its name. It was nice to walk along the beach and the caves were interesting, but beaches pretty much only allow for one thing to be recorded and that’s the ocean. Retuning to where we were staying however I got a few interesting bird sounds and a very VERY aggressive Chihuahua. Again I think it might have been reacting to the fluffy cover on my mike, but it amazes me that such a small animal can sound so aggressive. I think I will have to play around with the sound and see what it sounds like dropped in pitch by an octave. Angry angry little dogie.
