Water tanks are often positioned right behind the house, but as long as it is attached to a big roof, it works. This one was by what I believe used to be a farm building, possibly an apple orchard storage, but is now Motueka Sculptor Tim Wraight's Sealevel Studio. One day I hope to do a series of photos of his work, but last weekend, we found this tui bird instead.
Usually the tanks are black, green or light lime green, but we saw a fancy accommodation under construction with three tanks painted the same color as the buildings. This is in response to Alice's post of August 29.
