Steve Plambeck has a new post up at his blog (The Loch Ness Giant Salamander).
“I thought I’d be done with the Gray Photo for awhile and get on with the larger topic of this blog, but the original article engendered so much comment on the buoyancy issue, the “balloonish” shape of the object in the photo, I knew I had to do one of two things. I considered putting Nessie on a low-fat, vegan diet and waiting for her to slim down and answer her critics herself, but in the end it seemed more politically correct, perhaps even chivalrous, to post a short sequel and defend her bodily proportions myself.
“It has been a long-time criticism of the Gray Photo that the object appears to float much too high above the waterline to be a natural object or real animal. My previous post dealt with this issue in passing, but it clearly requires a greater explanation, and a broader one covering three things: What We Have In The Photo, What’s It Doing? and What Else Might Be Going On?”
What else indeed? Here’s the answers from Steve.
