Over the days, I got obsessed with rivers! There are so many from the mountains! And they all sound different!
On the trail to Snaefellsjoküll, I passed through a place called “Songhellir” or “Singing Cave” in English.
I walked up from the road intersection since there was no way to continue by car because of the ice and snow (winter time!)
I arrived in front of the entrance of the cave but unfortunately it was obstructed by a lot of snow.
Anyway, I was able to climb up the snow and the icy rocks.
Hopefully I had train climbing last year, so I had some assurance doing it!
A the top of my climbing I could enter some cavities where the wind was funneled and this made really cool swooshing sounds.
So, even if I couldn’t get into the cave, I had some nice recordings of wind!
Some beautiful water streams out there near El Reventador
Exploring this breathtaking scenery! In between the Andes mountain chain/ volcanos and the Amazon forest.
I have been hiking the mountain a little.
I have been recording some interesting ambiences (when cars were not passing by the nearby highway :-)).
I also found this cute tropical bird:
At noon, I took a little time spent on top of the roof of the hostel at Cotacachi. Allowing to capture compelling and authentic Ecuadorian ambience.
From distance I can hear announcing trucks, those truck that have speakers and navigate around the village to announce whatever they try to sale.
I found them really typical and they sound great from up here, bouncing all over the houses walls and mountains. Also the view is really nice here. Could spend the day on the roof! But more adventures await me…
