Something about being near the water makes "sounds" more significant. I am positive a scientific explanation exists for this phenomenon but I prefer a more spiritual or natural description of why this is true. First, let it be said no absolutes exist for what I hear around the water. An explosive waterfall, a crashing ocean wave, or as in this image, nothing. Well, the distant sounds of honking geese. Everything was quiet except for those geese. Perhaps this is a good way to start or end a day...with the peace and quiet of still waters.
