Ruby Tuesday - Wasatch Winter


Ruby Tuesday returns, the mere requirement being the inclusion of red. 

This week I am providing pictures from my brother Christopher. He and his family live north of Salt Lake City near the snowy Wasatch Mountains. 

Naturally, the winter is full of snow on the Salt Lake Basin. the wintery currents dropping frozen precipitation from the range nearby. Great skiing I am told! The University of Utah offers a fine ruby that stands out so nicely in this seasonal snow! Thanks Bro!

See rubies galore at Mary's fun site!

It is certainly a lot snowier where your brother lives than down here in New Jersey.

Red does show up in a lot of university/college banners, doesn't it?

You have more snow than it is in Finland ! But our weather is cold, -20 degrees fahrenheit :)

The red banner looks so nice against the white snow.
I'm dreaming of a white Christmas, but I don't think we've had that for 15 years.

I'm familiar with the snow that blows in off the Wasatch Front, growing up in southeastern Idaho.
This is a great photo!

What a lovely photo with wonderful contrasts of textures and tones.

Banners, so many have red in them, it's amazing.
