The Surgeon's Photo, a grand old hoax regarding the Loch Ness Monster, it's uncanny how similar they are to my two shots (minus the sunbursts as any time I've visited Scotland there has never been any sign of the sun haha!) what do you think, do you see it.....?
Like a summer’s day Nessie in her deepest loch
with itinerant Hugh Gray's camera watching on shore,
she bows her head to honour the sparkling blue
and dances in the sunlight between the stars.
She is a he whose strong arms plunge out to sea
powering over and above possible danger beneath,
relentlessly pulling liquid waves to his chest -
a celebration of strength, youth and fearlessness.
