George Edwards, a self-professed monster hunter believes he finally spotted the elusive Loch Ness Monster. His proof? A photograph which he says is the best-ever taken of the the legendary creature.
See for yourself! Is this the best photograph ever taken of the elusive Nessie?
“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 was quoted as saying by the Daily Mail.
He said that after watching the monster for five to ten minutes, it slowly sank into the waters and didn’t re-appear.
“I’m convinced I was seeing Nessie as I believe in these creatures. Far too many people have being seeing them for far too long,” he said.
The photo was taken by Edwards back in November 2011 from his passenger boat, Nessie Hunter IV, according to the Daily Mail. He said he sent the photo to the USA for analysis before releasing it publicly.
“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 U.S.A. who have friends in the military,” Edwards said.
“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.”
“I would say it doesn’t prove what Nessie is, but it does prove what Nessie isn’t, a sturgeon which is a fish that has been put forward as one of the main explanations as to what Nessie could be but this hasn’t got a serrated spine like the sturgeon,” he added.
