Infrared Nessie photograph to be revealed

Is there an undiscovered creature lurking in the loch's depths ? Image Credit: CC 2.0 Dave Conner
Loch Ness Monster hunter Jonathan Bright will present the image at Scotland's first paranormal festival.
Bright is set to travel to Stirling in time for the event, which will take place between October 30th and November 2nd, to talk about his experiences investigating the Loch Ness Monster as well as to reveal a previously unpublished infrared photograph that he believes shows evidence that the creature exists.

After the conference he will also be returning to the loch to launch a new investigation in the hopes of locating the enigmatic beast.
"My travels for exploring legends and investigating mysterious phenomena have taken me to various places in Europe, but nowhere else have I felt so enchanted and connected with the place as at the mysterious Loch Ness," he said.

"It was only a brief trip in the Highlands, but on the day that I was actually cruising the Loch, my infrared camera had captured a picture that, in my opinion, proves that the ‘monster’ is much more than a tall tale. "

A previous image that Bright took in 2011 of something unusual in the loch can be viewed - here.

And it certainly is not a rock floating in the middle of the Loch in case you might have been wondering... Is that meant to be funny? Yes, of course we all think it's a floating rock. Oh wait, everyone here seems to agree it was a wave... 'cept you. No that was just me trying to avoid a future question. I have read it mentioned elsewhere by others that it might have been a rock, so just to make sure, I was wondering if youd been in Loch Ness, or you too may come back suggesting that it could be a rock. (I had figured out that you haven't, of course.) As for the last sentence. a) that's just an... [More]

As you have read from the exif data above, sorry to disappoint you I don't get disappointed - I learn. And without being attached to the original image, that isn't exif, it's stuff you typed into your post. Might be true, might not. Normally I would accept it at face value, but given the way you are treating this forum as if it was your personal blog, I'm afraid I'm accepting nothing you say as true unless you support it. From all the data listed in the EXIF list, this is all that you had to say? I wonder what you wanted to see in the data in the first place? But that's yet another example of ... [More]

BTW, Jonathan, I think I *will* take a look at that exif data. I hope that's ok . (I mean, if I get it all wrong, you can have a field day..). Of course an examination of that data will not be verifiable until we see it attached to an original image sourced from you directly, which apparently won't be happening.. but it might be interesting to take a look anyway. However, before I start, I can't help but notice the exif is presented in a rather strange format (was this translated from Greek, perchance?) and seems to be missing an important field or two - may I ask what program you used to get ...

There is no 'selected' exif. It's all the info that appear by right clicking on the image properties and then details. It's from the Windows photo editor program which I use to view all my pics. The left column shows in Greek of course, and I've had to translate it. As for the date/time, as I have noted, the date is correct, but I'm not absolutely sure about the time, for one thing, there seem to be 1 hour difference, on the basis of Greek time zone. I took another picture just now and it showed 23 minutes later, so I have corrected the clock time. But I don't remember ever having done this be... [More]

I'd not go after ChrLsz for being through. Often people post just plain stupid pictures that have obviously been edited, yet they SWEAR that they are untouched and unedited. Asking after the exif is a good way to clear someone of possible editing of a picture. Experience on this site has shown that those who refuse to provide that level of data about their photos are almost always guilty of editing the pic. We see it over and over and over again. Myself, I believe you photographed what you claim you did. I believe that crowning wave is really there. I, myself, just don't buy into it being a fi... [More]

Myself, I believe you photographed what you claim you did. I believe that crowning wave is really there. I, myself, just don't buy into it being a fish or a Nessie. Re: fish// http://www.unexplained-mysteries.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=273993&st=30#entry5350835

toast, forgive me for missing to mention the Atlantic salmon, honestly, when I was writing the post, I did not know that November is the month that Atlantic salmon population is increased in Loch Ness, but since then, I have heard some other people mentioning it, and they believe that the Loch Ness 'monsters' could also be drawn to the Loch this month, just because the amount of fish, i.e. food, increases. That's the only way that I could have included the Atlactic salmon issue in the blogpost, since I don't really think that the head looks anything like a salmon at all... For the same reason,...

That you "have heard" that "some ppl believe" means not that much if you are trying to give the Nessie issue some kind of investigational standard.

That you "have heard" that "some ppl believe" means not that much if you are trying to give the Nessie issue some kind of investigational standard. I did some quick statistic with data from a page http://www.lochnesss...p?pageid=498361 that I have found on the web, this page gives (an unconfirmed) overview of reported sightings in between 1986+1999. There are 97 sighings reported for that period of time and I calculated the percentage of sightings per month as follows (month/percentage): 1-1,0/2-2,1/3-8,2/4-4,1/5-13,4/6-12,4/7-11,3/8-13,4/9-11,3/10-9,3/11-1,0/12-12,4. So the November sightings... [More]

There seems to be something wrong with your calculations. From a first look, I was sort of surprised to read a figure of '12,4%' for December, but going through the sightings list myself, I could only find one report in the month of December, on 31.12.98... Thats correct/typo.
