Since the 1930s, the legend of the Loch Ness Monster has captured the minds of true believers the world over. As the story goes, the monster (affectionately known as "Nessie") is a 10-foot creature inhabiting Loch Ness in the Scottish Highlands. While there has been no 100 percent concrete proof of Nessie's existence, from time to time there are sightings that rock the world to its core. Today, we have one such sighting, in the form of a photo that appears to show the Loch Ness Monster coming to the surface to give skeptics and believers alike something to talk about.
The photo come from a 58-year-old whisky warehouse worker named Ian Bremner, a family man who likes to flex his photography skills by roaming through the Highlands. On an expedition for deer, he saw three humps in the water and was sure he'd seen Nessie. “This is the first time I’ve ever seen Nessie in the loch," he says. "I would be amazing if I was the first one to find her." He says he's usually a skeptic, but was surprised when he saw the humps in the water. "When I saw it on my screen I said, ‘What the hell is that?’"
His friends are major party poopers, and are trying to tell Ian that what he actually captured were three seals. "I suppose it could be seals," Ian continues, "But I’m not so sure. The more I think about it, the more I think it could be Nessie." You've gotta follow your heart.

Nessie sightings have popped up a number of times over the last few years; Google was on the hunt for the monster last April, while some fallen branches that showed up on Apple Maps had people thinking they saw the creature back in 2014. In 2013, one video claimed to show Nessie making waves, but it was acclaimed Nessie hunter George Edwards who apparently took the last "most convincing photo" of the Loch Ness Monster back in 2012.
As of now, you can't really tell Ian Bremner that he's wrong; he's the one with the receipts, while you're the one doubting the truth in front of your eyes. But if we have to play it your way, yes, without concrete evidence, there's no telling what he saw. Blah blah. You go jump into the water and let us know what YOU find.
Didn't think so.
