Big Cottonwood Canyon, UT
Bob Hills used a tripod to steady his Canon EOS 5D with 24–105mm f/4L Canon EF lens during a 0.3 sec exposure at f/22, ISO 100, a setting that blurred the moving water.
Big Cottonwood Canyon, UT The white of the snow contrasts with the color in the damp rocks. Hills used his handheld EOS 5D with 70–200mm f/2.8L Canon EF IS lens for exposure of 1/125 sec at f/14, ISO 400. Bob Hills
Pines Uinta Mountains, UT Snow-dotted trunks of a stand of lodgepole pines create stark subject matter, accentuated by falling snow and low clouds. Same handheld rig as previous image, 1/160 sec at f/20, ISO 400. Bob Hills
Phragmites, Willard Bay, UT Snow encourages minimalism, as in this shot of windblown grasses. Same equipment as previous images, plus 2X tele-converter and tripod. Exposure, 1/160 at f/45, ISO 400. Bob Hills
Sugar House Park, Salt Lake City, UT Trees stand out from the usually detailed background, their leaves offering a touch of color. Hills handheld a Canon EOS 5D and 28–135mm f/3.5–5.6 Canon EF IS lens, 1/320 sec at f/6.3, ISO 400. Bob Hills
Liberty Park, Salt Lake City, UT The pattern of this bench was an “irresistible subject” for Hills, who handheld a 5D with 70– 200mm f/2.8L lens, 1/125 sec at f/11, ISO 400. Bob Hills
