Once again, the Loch Ness monster seems to be a shy creature as images are unclear and open for debate. According to Elder, a long shadow possessing a length of approximately 15 feet was seen in the 23-mile-long body of water in Northern Scotland. Elder claims the long bow could only be caused by surface disturbance on the lake.

"We were at the pier head at Fort Augustus and I was taking a picture of a swan at the time," said David Elder on his Loch Ness monster sighting.

"Out of the corner of my right eye I caught site of a black area of water about 15ft long which developed into a kind of bow wave.

"I'm convinced this was caused by a solid black object under the water. The water was very still at the time and there were no ripples coming off the wave and no other activity on the water.

"Water was definitely going over something solid and making the wave. It looks like the sort of wave perhaps created by a windsurfing board but there was nobody on the loch at the time, no boats, nothing.

"The disturbance in the water began moving up the Loch sideways. It is something I just can't explain."

However, skeptics are not convinced. Some claim the 15 ft. long bow wave may just be a freak gust of wind.
