Rain Falling on Lake

Soothing Rain Drops

Artist: Jan Brelih
Cerknice Lake, Slovenia

The atmosphere at the wild lake was very moody. As the rain began, the raindrops created a distinct sound as they touched the surface of the lake. Not having a natural shelter made it impossible to capture this beauty using microphones. I headed towards the lake, which had a high water level, with bushes and branches floating on the surface. I placed the recording equipment with the tripod partially submerged in the water. I threw a woollen blanket over the top branches of the bush. I was able to capture these soothing raindrops hitting the lake surface. 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.
