As George Edwards peered into the thick mist that covered Loch Ness with an eery silence, he glimpsed a dark hump slinking in and out of the still waters.

Was this the bashful beast he had hunted every day for 26 years and has outfoxed scores of investigators before him?

He steered his boat, Nessie Hunter, towards the mysterious form - without a thought for his own safety - to take a photograph before it vanished back into the deep.

He now claims the picture is the best ever taken of the Loch Ness Monster and - most importantly - proves once and for all that the elusive leviathan is definitely NOT a sturgeon.

Looks like a 2D cardboard copy, no movement in the water.

It does have a 3D shape to it, however the waves and ripples makes me think that it isn't Nessie sized and much smaller.  Combine that with the non-descript lump and it could be anyhting. My conclusion is that it's another one to go in the stack of unclear, unconfirmed nessie photos.

In the beginning there were only probabilities. The universe could only come into existence if someone observed it. It does not matter that the observers turned up several billion years later. The universe exists because we are aware of it.

He found the answer for slow business.  Throw something in the water, take a picture, proclaim it's nessis and wham lots more tourists for him to haul around.

They didn't use thousands of workers - oops forgot about the work camps
There's no evidence for ramps - You found one?...Bummer
Well we know they didn't use ancient tools to cut and shape the stones - Chisel marks?  Craps

A team of US military monster experts

Huh? There is a division of the the US military called "Monster Experts" now? lol

Let me guess a bunch of army guys who have a hobby of hunting cryptos and call themselves experts... Hilarious.

Edit, Sakari already picked up on it. lol

Quaentum is probably right,... making money from the gullible has never been a problem.

Given this is Daily Fail stuff I'm not sure it is worth pursuing, but let's give them the benefit of the doubt..

Out of interest, there are several clues* that this image was taken with a reasonably wide field of view, say about 28-35mm equiv.  That being the case, and assuming the photographer is up on the deck of the sort of mid-sized vessel that the other photo indicates, I'll lay a sizable bet that thing was less than 150 yards from him.  If it's about a half mile away as claimed, I'll eat my hat.

Of course he had to make the claim it was far away, as if it is close it is obviously way too small...

I'm happy to elaborate on why I think it is much closer, but I'd prefer to keep that up my sleeve just in case ... for now I'll just say I'd like to see that image at full-resolution including exif data, and I'd also like to see a shot of that boat showing where the person was standing with his camera when it was taken.  I think a bit of fairly simple photogrammetry might show that the truth about the distance and size of the object is somewhat different to what is being claimed.  Why not come over to UM and discuss, Skipper George Edwards?  And to Steve Feltham, the local expert - why does he refer to images, plural, when only one has been shown? And what techniques did he apply to his analysis, I wonder?

I note George says that he can't say anything about the USA 'monster experts'...  Well, that's pretty dang convenient and I certainly believe him, oh yes I do..  I just want to know how he found and got in touch with them in the first place..  I'm afraid I'm not buying into his claim that they have properly analysed it - indeed, if they have, let's see the analysis, thanks, George...

BTW, I see George does the odd bit of advertising, but seriously, he needs a new portrait photographer who can tell him to not stare fixedly into the camera .. :P

Where are the video clips? These guys claim to be "Nessie Hunters" and they don't carry around video cameras. I call B.S.
