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.
