A Night on Earth : Tropical Thunderstorm, Cocora Valley, Colombia (4​.​592488, -75​.​524440)

This stormy night was recorded in the national park of the Coroca region (Colombia), and more precisely in an isolated valley, adjacent to the famous Cocora valley (very touristy). After hours of winding tracks under the storm, we established a bivouac, alone in the middle of the montane tropical forest. This forest is very atypical, because we are here at 3000m above sea level. The vegetation is very strange, like these giant palm trees, called wax palm (Ceroxylon quindiuense).

The night begins with the calls of the amphibians who respond to the drops of water from a light rain. In the distance the thunder rumbles crescendo. The rain intensifies, always with the rhythm of the frogs and thunderbolts.
Then the storm subsides and gives way to a concerto of frogs and night birds. The sound recording ends in the middle of the night, the sound of amphibians has subsided. In the background we hear the storm go away.

This recording is shorter than usual, because it was technically hard to make and require more editing than usual. Rainfall recordings are never easy, but I hope you enjoy it.

Phonography : Perito Moreno Glacier (-50.468155, -73.033698)

Phonography : Day at the Perito Moreno Glacier (Argentina). Ice collapse and multiple ice chunks falling into the water. An Iceberg is born.

It was quite hard to record, because of the tourist attendance. But after dark some records were good.

I did a quick editing of three moments when the ice collapsed.
