Posted by: Craig Woolheater on June 29th, 2015

With thousands of eyewitness accounts of The Loch Ness Monster, what are people really seeing? Is it tricks of light and water? Or are they really seeing a monster in and around the loch? You decide.

    Very interesting and thorough presentation. A little heavy on Shine but of course, he’s there and walking the walk. I always felt that the Rines flipper images were more than enhanced just by the look and the angles. Oh course now, no one knows who did the final “enhancements” before publication and why weren’t the differences pointed out and objected to by Rines and company at the time? After all is said and done I guess that the sonar contacts are the most intriguing bits of evidence for something unusual in Loch Ness but having been following this story for over fifty years with no conclusion and all the classic evidence seeming to be going down the tubes, I have to put Loch Ness on the back burner as far as cryptids go.

    cryptokellie – ya, this was pretty cool to watch… interesting ideas…. the boat sonars… they still don’t know what those were, eh?

    the seals and elephants ideas… those were interesting.

    the designer guy trying to recreate the rines image was REALLY cool… he couldn’t even with today’s more modern software… that was really interesting… could they have somewhat “fudged” the image? i don’t get rines being a hoaxer… i mean he kept going back to loch ness even when he was super old… if he knew that was a BS photo, why would he?

    why spend the money and risk your health at that age?

    something to consider.

    But really interesting episode.

    I mean you have that one, champ and the one in BC… yet there seems to be more bigfoot sightings and whatnot than the lake monsters… makes you wonder.

    i mean if these things breathe air… why aren’t they seen more often?

  3. cryptokellie responds:

    I don’t think Rines was a hoaxer either. Why he allowed the extra enhancements of the his images to go public will always remain a mystery. The fact that the un-enhanced images show little more than silt and murky water cast doubt that anything objective can be gleaned from them. Further, I have seen the color-corrected original 16mm Kodachrome images which are overall tan in color and they do appear to show the bottom of the Loch with a lot of silt in the water. The black and white enhanced images show heavy noise reduction and an arbitrary definition of the flipper form not seen the originals. Perhaps Rines believed so strongly in his conviction that a cryptid did exist in the Loch, he allowed his scientific judgement to be swayed a bit. He was after all, as are all of us, only human.
    Review Dick Raynor’s article :The Flipper Pictures Re-examined” on line for excellent analysis.

    ya… another thing… i had no clue until a few years ago that the loch was open to the sea.

    what if THAT was the cause of something swimming up in there periodically…. maybe whales or something… who knows.

    that opens up a HUGE thing to consider.

    vs say lake champlain or the lake in BC.

    those are closed lakes.

  5. Insanity responds:

    Watching the video, though have to correct you dconstrukt, as Lake Champlain does connect to the Atlantic Ocean via the Richelieu River, which flows north into the St. Lawrence River, and then into the Atlantic Ocean.
