Lavender Stem In the Snow

I have a lovely lavender bush that blooms in the spring and again in the fall. This past fall I didn't prune the stems off because they bloomed until mid November and then it started snowing...and didn't seem to stop.

I recently took a photography class. One of our lessons was about movement in photos and practicing with the shutter speed to get the movement in a photo that we wanted. When we had a snowstorm, I bundled up and went outside to take some photos.

I took photos of the snowflakes falling, changing my shutter speed so it went from a blanket of white to being able to see individual flakes falling. When I saw my lavender bush with the stems covered with gently falling snowflakes, I decided to take a few photos.

I like how you can see the individual crystals of snow sitting on the stem. You can see some tiny flakes of snow falling in the background as well.
