Standing at the ready. Won't be hard for the fire department to spot that one.

It does - but I hope the water isn't frozen...

Lene said...

Yes - it really do :) Like drops of red blod in the pure, white snow :) Great effect in your photo :)

Have a lovely week :)

I love your red hydrant ... I wish I was there to photograph it too.

Annie said...

Hi. I missed this last week. Love the ruby contrast against the brillian white snow.

Ralph said...

That is a substantial ruby. The beautiful snow is untainted, that is until the neighborhood doggies spot it and investigate, A red and white masterpiece.

Patti said...

Amazing how something like a hydrant can create a cool photo. The red against the white snow is pretty!

Fire hydrants around here are all yellow.

Happy RT, EG!

Stephanie V said...

So simple. Love the shadows and many colors of the supposedly white snow.

Carletta said...

Love this! Shadows are wonderful as well.

Ricepatty said...

Red sure does stand out in the snow. I just love that - perfect for Ruby Tuesday!

Becky and Gary said...

Excellant EG, and I see someone is keeping it cleaned out in the snow so the fireman an spot it.

really pretty the way the snow was cleared and created a swirl
and the tree shadows are a lovely bonus

Lovely color for a fire hydrant.

Great Find Ruby

Carolyn Ford said...

Nice composition...it must be cold because the hydrant is wearing a cap!

nice A said...

That's a great find for RT. It's good the hydrant isn't covered with snow otherwise the firemen can't locate it.

luna miranda said...

simply beautiful photo. great composition.

Jama said...

With such extreme weather I wonder if the water froze in there?

Robin said...

It sure does, it makes a great subject for a snowy day.

Judy said...

I love the shadows here - the tree, the hydrant itself, and the curve of the snow around the hydrant!!

The Cunning Runt said...

That's a great shot, with the shadows making it extra special!

Helena said...

Red does indeed show up well in the snow. :) Nice capture!

Greyscale Territory said...

With all our hot weather at the moment, it seems so strange to see a fire hydrant buried in snow! Great shot!

Momma@Live. Laugh. Pull your hair out said...

Love this pic! So simple but stunning!

eileeninmd said...

Great shot and the red hydrant sure does stand out well in the snow.
