Wine Cask

I took this photo of a huge wine cask in the Sonoma/Napa Valley of California when Robyn and I visited earlier this year.
The cask itself was huge (over 10 feet tall) and was just there for display as more modern containers are used today. I liked how the bars from the window cast strong lines on the cask while the sunlight brought out the grain and rich color of the wood.
In case anyone was wondering, the candle serves no useful purpose, it's just there to add some mood lighting. In addition to the well maintained fields and gardens, 'Wine Country' has a lot of old equipment and buildings which make for interesting photo subjects.
