One new image in particular caught the eye of Britain’s Telegraph newspaper.
“We were surprised by this sighting, too,” said a Google spokesperson, when a strange object was pointed out floating on the loch’s surface. “Is it a log, a bird or … the monster?!”
Object in Loch Ness that sparked some interest
Google released the images of its search Tuesday, on the anniversary of the publication of the well-known “Surgeon’s Photograph” of the Loch Ness Monster in Britain’s Daily Mail on April 21, 1934.
That photo was proven to be a fake 41 years later in 1975 by the Sunday Telegraph.
The infamous “Surgeon’s Photograph”
Google used a 40-pound Street View “Trekker” camera around the perimeter of the loch for a week, and also attached it to a boat for a week to collect its images atop the water surface.
It joined Catlin Seaview Survey to capture images from under the surface.A diver who took underwater images in Google’s search of Loch Ness (Google photo)
