Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Sense of Hearing

There are many pleasant sounds. Some are big, some are small. I have chosen a man-made sound and a sound of nature, each contributing to our sense of hearing.

Gallery #1 is a fog-horn. We got to hear that familiar two-note low-frequency fog-horn wale first-hand while at Whitefish Point Lighthouse as the fog lay heavily over Lake Superior! With improvements in ocean navigation technology, the number of fog-horns still in use has dwindled. But not so long ago, the fog-horn was a sound of warning and safety for the mariner plying the dark seas.

Gallery #2 comes from the sound of water in nature. This water ripples past partially submerged rocks in a creek bed and offers a soft and soothing sound, in pure contrast to the noise of civilization.

    1. Yes, my week has started well. Hope all is going for you as well. Thank you for selecting me for the feature list. I very much appreciate that. I kind of wish I was now up where that fog-horn sits on the edge of Lake Superior!


  1. The sound of water is always a winner, but the foghorn is interesting. In England, it has a very mournful single note which lasts say, five seconds or so, then a silence of a couple of seconds and then repeat the long mournful note. It can last hours, and sounds as if it is weeping for the loss of the Titanic.
