It blows all the time

at Heard Island,

but now and again it stops.

And I remember enjoying

one of these spectacular lulls,

at Atlas Cove,

and right over the other side
of Atlas Cove

- the Laurens Peninsular -
you know -

there's lots of wildlife

living in the cliffs over there

- but just in this
absolute silence

- hearing this -

AND running a little tape recorder

like this,

and capturing this.

In rare moments of quiet
distant birds can be heard
borne through lulls
in howling winds.
