Unicorns, Big Foot, Nessie: what all these things have in common is that there has yet to be any real proof that these mythical creatures really do exist. Well, at least until now.
Get ready, nonbelievers, because there is now photographic evidence that the Loch Ness Monster is real — that is, if you see what this Scottish man sees.
Fifty-eight-year-old Ian Bremner works at a whisky warehouse during the week, and is an amateur photographer on the weekends. After driving around the Highlands in Scotland on Saturday in search of capturing images of red deer, the whiskey worker instead stumbled on what could be the greatest Nessie sighting to date.
Bremner snapped a photo of what many are calling the most "convincing" evidence of the Loch Ness Monster.
Whether or not you believe it, the photographer is surely convinced that he really did capture a Nessie sighting. The monster, who is spotted in the water between the Scottish villages of Dores and Inverfarigaig, appears to show off its long, snake-like body as it is swimming away.
If this is true, then this is proof that the mythical beast is very much real.
Tales of the Loch Ness Monster began when the creature was first reportedly spotted in 1933 in the Scottish Highlands. Accounts claim that Nessie looks like a serpent with a long, wavy body. While many might think it is just a myth, others believe it could be a relative of dinosaurs. With new creatures found in the depths of the ocean even today, who knows what is really lurking underneath?
"It's a part of the world that always makes you second guess what you're seeing," Bremner said in an interview. This is the first time I've ever seen Nessie in the loch. I would be amazed if I was the first one to find her. I'm normally a bit of a skeptic when it comes to Nessie and I think it's just something for the tourists but I'm starting to think there is something out there."
Then again, it could just be a photo of three seals.
This is exactly what Bremner's friends — and probably the rest of the world — thinks is what is in the photo. Just take a good look.
However, there have been over 1,000 alleged Loch Ness monster sightings over the past years, so it's always a possibility that Nessie is still swimming right under our noses.
