It was like you say an open area, but there are no real mountains around. V=
ery, very low mountains. The open area does have a forrest around it.
Often there is a lot of reverb around you, but you can't hear it because of=
all wind, traffic and other human noises. When the wind is very low and th=
e surroundings is quiet, the reverbs can be heard more clearly.
Still I sometimes have problem guessing what the reverb is gonna be in adva=
nce in an specific environment. This is gonna be nice I think, but when I'm=
going there to record it sounds like i'm sitting in a small room or in a c=
I think that humidity and other things affect the sound/reverb as well.
