This week we have a new sighting of the elusive Loch Ness Monster of Scotland and there’s photographic evidence to go along with the find. Loch Ness hunter William Jobes, 62, took the photo shown above and he says it wasn’t by mistake, he’s been hunting Nessie for 45 years.
The photograph was taken hear Fort Augustus, Scotland and appears to show a spiny back and perhaps even a tail or spike protruding from the sea creature.
Jobes tells the DailyMail that he was walking the Abbey footpath in Fort Augustus in May with his wife when he saw what appeared to be a sea creature bobbing in the water about 200 to 300 yards off shore.
“I had a wonderful shock,’ Mr Jobes said.’I have actually been coming up to Inverness for the past 45 years and I have never seen anything like this before.”
As is the case with most sightings, other Nessie spotters are skeptical, including Veteran Loch Ness hunter Steve Feltham who believes a large stick or another object may have made it’s way into the waters, although he does admit that the hump on the photograph can not be immediately explained away at this time.
In the meantime, here’s a video that claims to have caught the sea creature on tape in 2007.
I posted the video because it shows how easy it can be to turn just about any moving object into a Loch Ness sighting. In any case it will be interesting to see what photographic experts say about Mr. Jobes’ sighting.
