New Loche Ness photos have emerged after George Edwards, a Scottish skipper who spent decades searching for the beast claims to have snapped new photos.
George Edwards, has waited 26 long years, working up to 60 hours per-week to discover the Loch Ness Monster. Now a new Loch Ness photo could substantiate his hard work. On November 2, 2011 at 9 a.m., Edwards snapped a picture of mysterious dark hump he saw in the water moving towards Urquhart Castle.
He claims the picture is the best-ever taken of the Loch Ness Monster and proves once and for all that the elusive leviathan exists - and is definitely not a sturgeon.
"It was slowly moving up the loch towards Urquhart Castle and it was a dark grey color. It was quite a fair way from the boat, probably about half a mile away but it's difficult to tell in water," according to the Daily Mail, which has posted Edwards photo. He watched the object for five to ten minutes before it slowly sank and did not resurface.
'I was just about to return to Temple Pier (in Drumnadrochit) and I went to the back of the boat which was facing the pier and that's when I saw it,' said 60-year-old Mr Edwards, a lifelong believer in the monster.

Edwards said he did not release the photo in November 20011 when it was first taken because he wanted unnamed experts to examine it. He is quoted in the Daily Mail as having had the photograph "independently verified by a team of US military monster experts."
However, the United States military does not have a team of "monster experts" that it dispatches to investigate huge, unknown creatures around the world. Nor, for that matter, is it clear what "verifying" his photo would mean other than suggesting it was likely a real (i.e., not digitally faked) image of something in the water - though what that "something" might be is, of course, the relevant question. The shape could theoretically be anything from a fish to a floating log to a lake monster.
