Photo 19 Dec 138 notes British wildlife photographer Jules Cox annually visits Lapland in the winter time hoping to shoot Great Grey Owls but had not yet had any luck. He again travelled to Finland this year and managed to photograph the Northern Lights - but the owls evaded him once more. However, just a few weeks after returning home he was informed by a Finnish friend that the owls had been spotted hunting there. He immediately booked a flight, hoping we could realise his ambition. The gamble paid off, he says. Just hours later I was stood watching the Phantoms of the North staring back at me, in the falling snow. There were five to six of the Great Greys in the area when I got there. I focused my shots on a specific pair though who were particularly accommodating.
