New Loch Ness Photo taken by popular Loch Ness monster hunter George Edwards is getting viral.
George Edwards, a Scottish Loch Ness monster hunter, released a photo of a bump on the water in what he believes as the mythological creature “Loch Ness.” The photo is now spreading on various international news sites, blogs and social media platforms Facebook and Twitter.
According to reports, the photograph was taken by Edwards on November 2, 2011 from the deck of his boat named “Nessie Hunter.”
“It was slowly moving up the loch towards Urquhart Castle and it was a dark grey colour. It was quite a fair way from the boat, probably about half a mile away but it’s difficult to tell in water,” Edwards reportedly said.
Edwards explained that it took him several months before he release the photograph because he had it examined by “experts” first.
“I did not want to mention my sighting until I was sure that I had not photographed a log or something inanimate in the water. I have friends in the USA who have friends in the military. They had my photo analysed and they have no doubt that I photographed an animate object in the water.I was really excited as I am sure that some strange creatures are lurking in the depths of Loch Ness,” he said.
If you’re clueless about Loch Ness Monter, here’s how Wikipedia describes its:
The Loch Ness Monster is a cryptid that is reputed to inhabit Loch Ness in the Scottish Highlands. It is similar to other supposed lake monsters in Scotland and elsewhere, though its description varies from one account to the next. Popular interest and belief in the animal has varied since it was brought to the world’s attention in 1933. Evidence of its existence is anecdotal, with minimal and much-disputed photographic material and sonar readings.
The most common speculation among believers is that the creature represents a line of long-surviving plesiosaurs. The scientific community regards the Loch Ness Monster as a modern-day myth, and explains sightings as a mix of hoaxes and wishful thinking. Despite this, it remains one of the most famous examples of cryptozoology. The legendary monster has been affectionately referred to by the nickname Nessie (Scottish Gaelic: Niseag) since the 1950s.
