Nessie: A 1938 Photo?

Posted by: Nick Redfern on October 2nd, 2013

Water Horses Loch Ness

Roland Watson (author of The Water Horses of Loch Ness) has a new post up at his Loch Ness Mystery blog, which focuses on an intriguing old photo and Roland’s analysis of it.


You can find the article right here, and here’s how it begins:

“Back in May of this year, I came across an auction for a picture which was described as a photograph taken at Loch Ness in 1938. The seller was actually not quite sure if it was but thought it the most likely place. The item sold for £26.00 and that was the end of that. However, my curiosity was piqued and I took a closer look at the JPEG image that I grabbed from the eBay website.”

    Or it’s a standing wave

    A great detective story with a positive outcome in the fact the photo was most likely taken at Loch Ness and possibly connected to an actual historically reported sighting. But alas, this image doesn’t seem to show much more than a wake or wave phenomenon which are so prevalent in the loch.That being said, I think that the journey of discovery was more satisfying the result. Often the case in human endeavor I have come to believe. Good work, I applaud it.

    Yes, it was more fun tracing it back. Unfortunately, at a mile wide, Loch Ness can present an often frustrating background for photography.

  4. pogsquatch responds:

    Roland’s book is a great read because he gives needed focus to the legends of the Water horses having shape-shifting abilities and going onto land often, a notion that Cryptozoologists are usually not willing to give credence to, but has been described on numerous occasions. Anyone seriously researching Lake Monsters will, after a couple years come to a crossroads where they can proceed using known science or even sociology to unsatisfactorily explain the phenom, or be forced to consider that it is something much more complex that has not been suitably explained by anyone yet.
