We were very lucky on our trip. Well, as an amateur photographer (I've actually sold one photo!),
Luck = Preparation + Opportunity!I prepared for our Snowy owl, charged batteries, grabbed the tripod, brought warm clothes, did research on owl-spotting (with help from the pros!), grabbed a grounds crew (mostly moral support!) and we hunted that birdie down.

- We did it! An owl!
Gillian GPS thought we were walking on water! The blue skies changed from that, to amazing clouds, bringing in the big storm that hit us the next day. The final photo shows the car covered in ice! I imagine people were worried about the impending storm as we drove north from the ferry across rural roads!
These are from the return trip. We'd arrived on the 10:30 a.m. ferry and caught the 2:30 ferry back.
