In 1994, the guy who took the famous black-and-white photo of the Loch Ness Monster admitted it was fake.  But that hasn't stopped people from BELIEVING in the aquatic creature.

An amateur photographer has captured an eerie photo from the shore of Loch Ness which could encourage those who believe in tales of a monster living beneath the surface of the lake.

The image was taken by David Elder at Fort Augustus, at the south-west end of the 23-mile-long body of water in northern Scotland.
