              • Lake Clark is about 40 miles long and 5 miles wide. With this massive lake,  conditions can vary from glassy, to gentle lapping, to white-capped swells in the same day. The size of the lake mixed with the rocky beach made for excellent recording conditions. 
              • If you ever want to record waves, get knee or chest waders. These are invaluable, especially when the water temperature is just above freezing. I was able to wade out among the rocks and capture some lovely swishes and gurgles as the waves broke against the shoreline. 
              • My favorite sounds from the library are the "crackling" waves. These waves crackled like carbonated water! This was an extremely soft sound created by a gentle wave breaking among small pebbles. I was able to capture this lovely sound by holding my DPA 4060s a few inches above the water as the wave broke.
