Fun Photo Friday — Invergorden & Inverness Favorites (and a Monster?)


Green Bench at Beauly Priory

Okay, you’ve been waiting for this all week, I’m sure. First, some background. I was standing at about this spot at the northeast end of Loch Ness:

Loch Ness

I had my camera set to  manually focus for some closeup images when out of the corner of my eye I spied something swimming in the loch. Now, having read many of the stories of trying to capture this elusive creature, I suspected I only had perhaps seconds to react before Nessie, or whatever, would dive beneath the surface into the dark depths of Loch Ness below. Without hesitation, I swung the camera up to my eye, and here is the dramatic result of this seldom seen phenomena of cryptozoology:

The Loch Ness . . . Creature?

Hey, what did you expect? Something clearer than most other Nessie photos? Alas, my instincts, that I would have limited time to avail myself of a photo before the opportunity elapsed, were proven correct. Before I could manually focus or switch the camera to automatically do so for me, the creature disappeared with an odd, “Quack,” and skittered across the loch with an strange flapping motion before disappearing into the distance.

That’s my story, and I’m sticking to it. Perhaps I should have saved that one for next year, say, around April 1. Anyway, I’ll leave you with one last image for today before you start throwing rotten tomatoes at your computer screen:
