I don’t know about you guys, but I love the sound of rain. On a somewhat related note, many of my friends and fellow photographers spend an inordinate amount of time in coffee shops on their laptops because they like the environment for working. This website that a friend showed me mimics the environment of both really, really well. In fact, you can even have both going at the same time.

Increase Your Creativity with the Ambient Sound of a Rainy Day in a Cafe

“A moderate level of noise enhances creativity compared to both low and high levels of noise. Moderate background noise induces distraction which encourages individuals to think at a higher, abstract level, and consequently exhibit higher creativity.”

Hey, I don’t know if that’s actually true or not, but I do know one thing: I love working with these sounds in the background. Guys… it even has thunder!

Not a fan of how limiting that site is? How about this one recommended to me by Toby Harriman: A Soft Murmur

Whichever you choose, this is a really neat way to get the sound that calms you anywhere you are.
