A Scottish man took this picture recently, and believes it is the infamous "Nessie" prowling about the surface of the water. Is he correct in his assumptions, or is there a natural explanation for his anomalous photograph?

Looks like rocks.  The photo was taken at a pretty great distance, and what looks like a cell phone.  I thought maybe it was an illusion/reflection of the house on the hill, but whatever is in the water has it's own reflection.

I agree. It would be nice to see another photograph of the area to see if it is indeed rocks or something floating in the water.

I agree with Brian.  I'd like to see other photos from other angles.

I figured it out.... it's an Iceberg.  Don't they have those all over the place in Scotland?   ::|

Honestly, I've been to Loch Ness and from what I can remember, the water is really dark and doesn't appear to be that blue, even on a sunny day.  Maybe photos can look different.  Do we know for sure that it is indeed a photo of the Loch?

Just hypothesizing here...  Looking at it from a purely Darwinian perspective, I don't think it'd be Nessie because of the coloring.

Nessie, if she exists, would most likely be an omnivore or carnivore which would mean that she must pursue prey to survive.  And due to the length of time she's been in existance, she must be adept at surviving in her Loch environment.  Knowing this, and the fact that the Loch Ness waters are notoriously dark and muddy, her coloring can't possibly be as light as what you see in the picture, or Nessie would be seen by her prey before she even got near them.

The aquatic world shows us repeatedly that the most adept hunters and the greatest species survival stories are those of hunters who are camoflauged in their environment.  Nessie would have to be dark in her coloration to stand even a sliver of a chance at hunting in those waters.

I think it looks like the result of a low lake level.
Sounds interesting...Go on.

Now that makes sense Damian.  Absolutely. 

Tim, it could be rocks or something like that due to low water levels.  You might be right.
