If Ian Bremner is telling the truth — about taking a crystal clear picture of the Loch Ness Monster — he’ll be hailed for settling an ancient mystery. If not, he’ll be forgotten in a millisecond.

Loch Ness Monster or series of seals? Photo by Ian Bremner
Skeptics and supporters this week debated whether the photo showed humps of the beast or a series of Scottish seals.

“Bremner, 58, was driving around the Highlands in search of red deer — but stumbled instead across the remarkable sight of what appears to be Nessie swimming in the calm waters of Loch Ness,” said the Daily Record.

“But it was not until he got back to his home in Nigg, Invergordon, that he noticed three humps emerging from the water which he thinks could be the elusive monster. The picture shows a two-metre long silver creature swimming away from the lens with its head bobbing away and a tail flapping a metre away, preparing to swim further on.”

But mysteriousuniverse.org asked: “What is in Ian Bremner’s clear photograph? If he didn’t have the incredible luck of accidentally snapping a Loch Ness Monster, did he have the incredible luck of accidentally snapping three seals lined up in a perfect position to look like Nessie? Or is it a very good CGI fake?”
