It almost looks like it was added to the picture... either way though, I can't really tell what it is.

Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain.

It could have been a fish. There are Sturgeon in that lake and those could have been some of its back ridges. You can tell from the scale of the pic that whatever it is is not very big.

Looks pretty fake to me, but it's hard to tell one way or the other due to the poor quality of the images.

I'd be interested in an expert's take on where the sunlight would have to come from to make the rainbow vs the shadows of the humps pointing back toward the photographer.

The light source is at ten o'clock, except for 'Nessie's' humps, which are lit from three o'clock. Clever, these lake monsters.

What scale?

Porlock is quite correct,the light on the objects does not match the direction of sunlight that made the rainbow.

The humps are very sharp,not rounded as Nessie has been depicted. Anyway that old photo has been admitted as a fake,so what is the shape of the monster.Since no two photos seem to be of the same being it follows that there are many different monsters. Well LOL

Coming from a 3 generation fishing family and having been raised as a kid to take over the family business before it stopped I can tell you it looks very much like a large Eel, I have in fact seen them much like them in my local creek. Eels go everywhere man XD

The light looks fine to me. Humps match the waves. The rainbow does not have to be straight on to appear the way it does.

Critter does look kind of small to me too. Just a guess, but like 3 to 4 feet long?? The humps definately are sticking out of the water. Might be a sturgeon, I guess, but a deformed one. Resolution is not too good. Looks like it could be a water-logged piece of wood, or maybe even an Otter. I've heard there are otters in Lock Ness.

Yeah, I also thought it was some floating tree trunk.

If it's long enough and keeps rolling over, it will look like some huge swimming animal from a distance.

I believe that Sturgeon are known to occasionally frequent Loch Ness. It has been suggested, in the past, that they could be responsible for some of the sightings of Nessie. They can grow to a big old size and are funny looking buggers, so I guess this could be what's in the photo.

Apologies to Grey14 who seems to have beaten me to it and already suggested Sturgeon. I really should read the comments before I post!

1. Photographs of weird shapes in the water doesn't indicate the presence of a loch ness monster.

2. Looks fake.
