Row of Wine Tanks at Chateau Dominique

By In Photographs
A call came through for wine related photos with a ‘futuristic’ theme. Such an open theme, with a wide level of interpretation. Trawling through the photo archives revealed thin pickings; few seemed to fit the brief. Dusty bottles with cobwebs? Future promises perhaps? Then thoughts of the sparkling stainless steel tanks in two Bordeaux Chateau sprang to mind.

Yep fall back to the repetitive, polished, abstract type image. This photo, taken back in June 2014, had lain unprocessed and unloved in the archives. A more skilful processing technique that has developed over the last couple of years resulted in this photo – Row of Wine Tanks at Chateau Dominique. While not certain if it will be put forward for the futuristic brief thought it might make a decent entry to the Sunday Wine Shot slot.

While stainless steel tanks obviously hold fermenting grape juice, with a promise of future delights, from an artistic viewpoint, they look like pods. Maybe holding evil alien invaders or deep sleep spaces for mankind. Or with those protuberances a form of Dr Who Dalek. With no comparative size reference the imagination can run wild. Well mind does at least.
