The Loch Ness Monster

By Derrob

Loch Ness might seem like a normal lake with normal lake life but many people belive there is something else, something amazing something that has eluded science for over a thousand years. The legendary Loch Ness Monster. Loch Ness is twenty-two and a half miles long and one and a half miles wide. The depth is seven hundred fifty-four feet and the bottem is “flat as a bowling green.” The loch is SO big it could hold the population of the world ten times over. The Loch never freezes so that plays a big part in which Nessie exists or not.

The first recorded sighting of Nessie was in 565 by Saint Columba. The first picture of the Loch Ness Monster was taken by Huge Gray on November 12, 1933. The story go that Mr.Gray was walking home from church and saw something rise out of the Loch about three feet. He took five photos but thought he had nothing of interest so didn’t bother to develop the film. His brother developed the film after three weeks and only one photo came out.

The photo that had the most impact for sixty-six years is the picture that Robert Kenwerth Wilson took on April 19, 1934. Reserchers have argued over the photo for 66 years but was proven a hoax in 1993. It was a rubber neck attached to a toy submarine.

The  most convincing photo of Nessie I have ever seen is this which was taken by a under water camera.

The best piece of evidence for Nessie was taken by Tim Dinsdale in 1960. He took a video of a dark object moving across the loch and has not been called a hoax yet.

I hope that one day ,Nessie will show the public that she exists and that all the skeptics will be proven wrong.
