An afternoon at Pilling Sands, taking pictures and recording sound.

A very satisfying experience to walk on an ice puddle feeling the cracking of the ice layer under my feet and the strange noises it produces:
I couldn’t get away from the traffic and plane noises which was frustrating. Also, I was having trouble with the recorder, getting high frequency noises. In the evening I had a chat with the house engineers and we concluded that the Zoom H4n can’t work very well if it only has one XLR cable plugged into it. I resolved this by having another XLR cable plugged into the 2nd input, though it wasn’t plugged to anything, but it made the noises disappear.
