Ebb current in rocky shore

Bretagne, France

A sunny day in Winter took us to calmly explore the coast over the rocks. We focused on a point of the shore where the tide was lowering very fast and due to the rocks’ display very small waves collided horizontally. The burble in the lowest registers illustrates the salty water mingling and mixing around some of the rocks more evidently as a top layer to the general ocean soundscape that was relatively calm, but this is why it’s not easy to discern a rhythmic pattern. There was some movement of marine birds here and there, feeding on the algae dragged sometime before, that created a slushy and muddy bed over a 30 meter range. is a completely free streaming service of 800+ nature sounds from around the world, offering natural soundscapes and guided meditations for people who wish to listen to nature, relax, and become more connected.
