What does a sunset sound like?
Does the question make any sense at all?
How can a sunset “sound” like anything?
I used to think that way, until I visited the South Island in New Zealand.
In July 2012, I spent a few days in the Franz Josef Glacier Township and Fox Glacier Township to visit their respective glaciers. Before leaving the glaciers area for good, I took the short 10-minute shuttle to Lake Matheson. I don’t know why I was reluctant to go in the first place; the reward was worth the effort, but isn’t that always the case.
Below is a short video I made at Lake Matheson (Te Ara Kairaumati). Clearly visible in the distance are Mount Tasman (Horokoau) and Mount Cook (Aoraki), illuminated by the late-afternoon sun.
I’ll say what’s abundantly obvious to many: that a sunset sounds peaceful. Fair warning though: my commentary comes up at about the 23-second mark.
