Loon Lake

Loon Lake cover photo

LOON LAKE features over an hour of continuous, awe-inspiring magic recorded in Algonquin National Park, Ontario, in early May, shortly after ice-out. Listen as loons call from near and far, their wails, yodels, and tremolos echoing across still waters against a backdrop of distant spring peepers. At once relaxing, beautiful and sublime, this recording evokes pure pleasure, and is certain to please.

photo of Lang ElliottNotes by Lang Elliott: Our expedition to Algonquin National Park started out badly. We paddled to the north end of a large lake and set up camp on an island. The wind was strong and cold, with whitecaps visible not far offshore – impossible recording conditions, or so it seemed. But when the sun finally set, as if by magic, the wind lightened and then disappeared altogether, just as the loons began their evening rhapsody. The sudden calm took us completely by surprise and we literally jumped into our canoes, frantically (and rather unsuccessfully) trying to maneuver into good positions for recording. Although the wind grew brisk during each following day, we were fortunate to have two more calm evenings before we had to part. I really love the northern lake country wilderness and our journey to Algonquin Park to record loons is one I’ll treasure for the rest of my life.

      I’m working on “Ontario Wavescape” but have been delayed as I work toward launching miracleofnature.org. So please stay tuned. I’ll notify everyone via my newsletter when the next title(s) appear.

    Truly superb!!! A million thanks! Do you also have whale songs (i’ve heard them on the net a good while back & was astounded)?

    • Lang Elliott says:

      Thanks Maria. We do hope to add whale sounds over the next year or two. I have not recorded whales myself, but I plan to partner-up with someone who has. By the end of the year, we should have at at least twenty titles in place, and that’s just the beginning!
