Melodic Lake Rocks

Artist: Nick McMahan
Montana, USA
Recommended charity: Quiet Glacier

The particular wind direction on this day created a compelling rhythm and tone as the small afternoon waves smashed and glugged along the rocky shore. 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.
