Blow holes at pancake rocks, New Zealand This is a recording from New Zealand on the south Island at a place called Punakaiki. These amazing underground caves and blow holes spew out these phenomenal sub-sonic booms as the ocean waves travel with incredible force through the caverns and holes. Birds heard in the background are White-fronted tern. This from Wikipedia: The Pancake Rocks are a very popular tourist goal at Dolomite Point south of the main village. The Pancake Rocks are a heavily eroded limestone area where the sea bursts though a number of vertical blowholes during high tides. Together with the 'pancake'-layering of the limestone (created by immense pressure on alternating hard and soft layers of marine creatures and plant sediments),[1] these form the main attraction of the area. This is a great recording if you have a woofer in your arsenal! Recording info: Recorder: SD 722 Microphones: Sennheiser MKH-40/30 MS pattern Gitzo traveller Tripod mounted with Rycote windjammers.

The Cayman Islands: Little Cayman The cayman islands are the "British" West Indies. This podcast is without narration this time. Taken from Little Cayman, this soundscape was in the middle of a tropical thunderstorm. The microphones were left on a coral beach. The waves crash onto the beach and thunder crashes in the background. You may hear West Indian Whistling ducks fly past the microphones towards the end. Little Cayman is a recordists dream, very few people inhabit the island. Recorded with Sound Devices 788t and 2 sets of MKH 40/30 microphones recorded in an MS pattern. Recordist Martyn Stewart
