Is there an unknown creature swimming in the cold depths of Scotland’s famous Loch Ness? Despite stories dating back to the Middle Ages about large, mysterious creatures inhabiting the Loch, no hard evidence of “Nessie’s” existence has ever come to light.
Every so often, however, someone claims to snap a picture of the elusive alleged “monster.”
After 45 years of trying, William Jobes believes he has evidence of the fabled creature’s existence.
The UK’s Daily Mail reports that the 62-year-old was walking along a footpath with his wife when he spotted something unusual in the water.
Whatever it was, it appeared to have a head that was bobbing about above the waves some 200 to 300 yards from shore. He managed to get a single picture with his camera.
“I had a wonderful shock,” Jobes told the paper. “I have actually been coming up to Inverness for the past 45 years and I have never seen anything like this before.”
The picture snapped by Jobes appears to depict a dark colored hump in the water with a smaller stub that looks like it could be a tale rising a short distance from the water’s surface not far behind the main hump. Or, maybe it’s the creature’s head. Or, maybe it is nothing at all.
