Rock Ness: Nessie Photos?

Posted by: Loren Coleman on June 17th, 2007

Nessie on Road

Nessie, seal, or otter? This does not represent a car full of Rock Ness attendees trying to photograph Nessie, but merely another view of the Spicer encounter of 1933 (used for promotional purposes by on various Scottish tourism sites).

As you will recall, after all the buzz of the Holmes video of an unknown something in Loch Ness, a million pounds was offered for definite photographic proof of Nessie. A promoter was to hand out reportedly 50,000 cameras at the Rock Ness concert held near Loch Ness.

Attendence was more than the 22,000 that showed up last year for the one day event. But did the 33,000 attending in 2007 for two days have any success with Nessie photos?

The simple answer was given in Scottish newspapers at the end of last week:

Sadly, despite the free cameras given out by a bookies’ chain, no-one got even a sniff of a shot of Nessie grooving away to the likes of The Chemical Brothers, Groove Armada or The Manic Street Preachers. “Rock Ness goes Daft” by Margaret Chrystall, Highland News, 14 June 2007.

    Only the sweet tones of Perry Como can lure Nessie from the depths of the dark loch.

    What a surprise… I didn’t think it’d be very likely for Nessie to appear amongst a throng of thousands of extremely loud party animals being the shy, wee timorous beastie that she is. Another thing is that Loch Ness is 23 miles long and all those revellers were probably located in a small catchment area. If I were Nessie I would have been as far away as possible personally…

    LOVE the cap!

  4. fuzzy responds:

    Perry who?

  5. mystery_man responds:

    As far as I know, there is no evidence of Nessie wearing a Scottish cap like that.

  6. springheeledjack responds:

    or a playin the pipes…

    And here I thought she preferred The Police…at least they were Brits (And not so many miles away)!
