Snow lady and off camera flash

We were blessed with 8+ inches of snow over the weekend.
Job 38:22 Hast thou entered into the treasures of the snow? or hast thou seen the treasures of the hail,
Treasures in the snow? Yes, the snow will melt and fill the water tables. I will not take the space to write about all the treasures in the snow. However, here are a few. 1. The snow will fill the water tables better than the rain. 2. There are vital nutrients in the snow for the ground and some state this is the reason why the grass is so green in the areas of the country that receives 'lots' of snow. [I know our grass is very green in the spring, summer, and fall.]
Now to the picture. My wife created this interesting and unique snow lady. To add dimension to the image I lit the scene with my flash off camera and to the left of snow lady. I used a small [large number] aperture so the background would darken and she was lit more than the back ground.
Yes, those little speckles are snow in the air. It was snowing while I was attempting to shoot this image. :-)
Settings: f/16. 1/150 second ISO 800 with the Tamron 17-50mm f/2.8 lens
