Every once in a while, a photo of the Loch Ness Monster pops up and the person who took the photo says it’s the proof we’ve all been waiting for.
Above is the newest photo. Sigh.
The new photo that George Edwards claims is evidence of the existence of the Loch Ness Monster features a dark gray hump sticking out of the water. If it is a hoax, at least it’s not as obvious at the “Surgeon’s Photo,” which is arguably the most famous picture of Nessie. The 1934 photograph was later debunked as a hoax—it turned out to be a toy submarine with a molded head and neck attached to it.
There has been lots of “evidence” purporting to prove Nessie’s existence ever since she became a sensation in the 1930s. However, all of the photographs, videos, and sonar searches have provided no definitive proof, and Edwards’ photo is certainly no exception.
However, Steve Feltham, another Nessie hunter who has examined many alleged photos of the creature, said this of George Edwards’ picture:
“It is the best photograph I think I have ever seen.”
“I think the images are fantastic – that’s the animal I have been looking for all this time.”
George claims that he also sent the photo to “friends in the USA who have friends in the military” to verify that he hadn’t photographed a log or some other inanimate object.
