Just waves, seals, sturgeons, floating logs as usual. Move along.

No floating logs don't just pop up and resubmerge at random and make waves in still water. And there is no way that is a crow. Whatever it is it is very much the shape of many other nessie photos. But what exactly that is... Who knows. Still looks like a lost elephant to me lol

Logs can just pop up and resubmerge: Possible explanations.

"When a mighty Scottish pine dies and flops into the loch, it quickly becomes water-logged and sinks. While submerged, botanical chemicals start trapping tiny bubbles. Eventually, enough of these are gathered to propel the log upward as deep pressures begin altering its shape. These bubbles finally start dissipating after a while, but their momentum allows the deformed wood to briefly surface before returning downwards to its watery grave. Such sudden bursts of arboreal buoyancy could easily be misinterpreted as huge animals coming up for air."

“It must have been something very large because we were about a mile away from the loch and I could see it clearly."

He certainly has very good eyesight. 

It’s too bad the article doesn’t have more information about the camera and the lens he was using. Telephoto lenses tend to compact (distort) the landscape in the foreground and the background of what’s being focused on. If we knew the distance from the hotel to the trees, and the distance from the trees to the shoreline, we might have a better idea of the size of the object.

I may be misinterpreting what I’m seeing, but does it look like the object has a shadow? I’m trying to figure out why there could be such a dark shadow on the water without any reflection of the sunlight on the water also. Or maybe I’m just overthinking again.  ;)

When will people realize that it's totally impossible for a species like "Lock Ness Monster" to live in an environment as poor as Loch Ness Lake? <_<

This article says he was at Foyers Roost.

Looking at Google Maps, if it was close to the center of the loch, it could easily have been about a mile.

Appears the trees are actually very close to the hotel. Using street view.

Just another photo that the Nessie heads will use on websites claiming the none existent creature exists.

Maybe it is something closer than the tourist believed

It took me a long time because I wanted to believe despite my knowledge for it being very unlikely. Thankfully truth eventually outweighed my desires. Some people just cling to what they want to believe, even when confronted with evidence that goes against it.

Confirmation bias........
