Beethoven provided wonderful examples of crescendo in a musical sense, I’m certain that nature does the same with waterfalls, cascades, earthquakes and thunder-storms, and not least the terror of hurricanes and cyclones.
My recent experience of crescendo was the corrugated dirt roads of inland on our recent jaunt. The noise was amazing, and not really captured by the camera. Lyn is on camera and I am driving. At one point the gear stick jumped out of gear into neutral. The cups bounced out of the cupholder, and gear in the back of the fell on the floor. But I’d do it again.
