There is an old rainwater tank that stands at the side of the house. Its’ days of usefulness are long past. With the down pipe now lying limp by it side it reminds me of the Tin man out of the Wizard of Oz. At first sight it does not have a great deal going for it and it was, initially, my intention to cut it in two and use it to store wood in, or for a goat shelter. Until one day not long after we moved into Wildflowers I was sitting on a rise not far from the house and the autumn sun was sinking down in the sky behind me. The long, mature rays of the sun began to fall on the tank and for a short time it was transformed into an object of great beauty, liquid colour flowing down its side. Over the days that followed I took a series of photographs, marvelling at the richness and depth of the colours and textures of this ‘redundant’ piece of metal as the sun played upon it. The sun gives it ‘heart’!
