201 © Kodachromes by Cecil E. Rhode 4 Wise Photographer Uses a Telephoto Lens for Bruin Portraits Dick Chace, the author's camping companion, aims a 14-inch lens at feeding bears. Rushing water drowned shutter noise. Wary at first, the animals virtually ignored the photographer a few days later. Chace stands knee deep in pink fireweed (Epilobium angustifolium). Wide flats to his right, now passable, are periodically covered by high tides. Volcanic hills rise above the almost treeless plains.
