On Tuesday evening I was doing some equestrian photography of a small dressage show at Clydach Riding Club.
The judges of the dressage sit in their 4×4 to watch the riders and blow their horn to indicate that the rider should start. Every time they do this I jump out of my skin. On Tuesday evening I was recording some of the sounds of the show. These include the background sound of traffic from the A4067 but this could never drown out the birds.
I am sure the judges had a laugh when, with my headphones on as they beeped their horn, I very visibly jumped. I have toned it down in this recording.
And for the field recordists out there, you can hear more on SoundCloud.
The equestrian photography can be found on PhotoShelter.
