Nessie, seal, or otter? This does not represent a car full of Rock Ness attendees trying to photograph Nessie, but merely another view of the Spicer encounter of 1933 (used for promotional purposes by loch-ness.org on various Scottish tourism sites).
As you will recall, after all the buzz of the Holmes video of an unknown something in Loch Ness, a million pounds was offered for definite photographic proof of Nessie. A promoter was to hand out reportedly 50,000 cameras at the Rock Ness concert held near Loch Ness.
Attendence was more than the 22,000 that showed up last year for the one day event. But did the 33,000 attending in 2007 for two days have any success with Nessie photos?
The simple answer was given in Scottish newspapers at the end of last week:
Sadly, despite the free cameras given out by a bookies’ chain, no-one got even a sniff of a shot of Nessie grooving away to the likes of The Chemical Brothers, Groove Armada or The Manic Street Preachers. “Rock Ness goes Daft” by Margaret Chrystall, Highland News, 14 June 2007.
