  1. Hi there. Great site. Will you be analysing the Cockerell photo of 1958. IMHO it's amongst the best photos to show an unidentified, animate and indeed animated creature on the loch. Chris M.

  2. enjoy this site during this (hopefully temporary) period of unemployment
    I recall the Lowrie photograph which seems little discussed these days, if memory serves the same events were observed from land by one Torquil McLeod ie there was corroboration

  3. inflatable humps? Nessie eats the bottom muck like a worm?
    and then processes it into the humps as methane for warmth?
    comes to the surface to flop about and fart it out when its too full? are you mad????
    Nessie is a cold water pleasaur and that's that.

  4. Hi Roland, I know you have dismissed the Shiels photo as a fake, but I wondered if you've ever seen the nearly identical one in a book called "Modern Mysteries of Britain"? It looks like the same object but seems to be stretched more straight and facing the other way. If you haven't seen it I can scan it and the accompanying text for you.

    1. I think I know which photo you mean but send it to me anyway to confirm.

  5. Some really good stuff on this blog. I'd be interested in people's views on the Academy of Applied Science work done under Dr Rhines in the 70s. For a long time the images from those projects seemed the closest we'd ever get to conclusive proof of the existence of large animals in the loch, though of course time has subsequently exposed some significant flaws in the setup and therefore undermined the results.

    What do we think of Rhines? He always struck me as a well-intentioned guy but someone who arrived at Loch Ness with his narrative already decided - he then looked for imagery to fit that narrative.

    1. Yes, there are issues with the Rines photos. I was always dubious of the "head" picture because it was nothing like that described by eyewitnesses. Subsequent diving proved the witness record was the benchmark.

      The unenhanced "flipper" picture shows something, but the opacity of the waters makes that picture and underwater photography in general difficult to analyse.

  6. Do you happen to know where the cameras were moored? I'm sure i read the site was off Temple Pier.

    The 'gargoyle head' was recovered from the loch and now sits as an exhibit in the Drumnadrochit exhibition.

    1. Yes just off Temple Pier, but I don't know the exact location.

  7. Have you ever seen Bobbie Pollck´s 2000 film? and Richard White´s 1997 pictures? Somewhere I found that these are the best in nessie´s theme. I´ve been finding out, without success...

    1. I may have seen them in scans of old newspapers. Some of these pre-Internet pictures do tend to get forgotten or lost!

      I would need to refresh my memory on them ...
