My home on a winter night.

I always feel such a strong 'energy' pouring off the loch late at night, which, unfortunately does not ever come across in photographs.

    It’s interesting how many people report feelings like that. I’ve been reading some of the classic Nessie literature—the hunters and the skeptics—and this feeling or atmosphere is mentioned in all the books written by people who investigated the loch firsthand. Ted Holiday described it well, I thought. Binns quotes HV Morton’s eloquent ‘In Search of Scotland’ published three years before Gray’s photo: “...the old castle sits grimly on a bluff overlooking the deep water and sings a song of battle and seige...the old building gazes steadily down to Loch Ness, and Loch Ness gazes back with rarely a ripple on her black face; and it seems to you that both of them have appropriate secrets.” Gothic. In fact, Poe’s “House of Usher” begins with the narrator arriving at Usher’s estate—peering into the ominous, black tarn that is near the house. The narrator hopes that the reflection of the landscape will make the mood less bleak. But the waters are impenetrable, and they only reflect the home and the atmosphere.

      I feel like Loch Ness is as much a mirror to those who investigate it as much as it is a window into its mysteries. It doesn’t merely reflect the bright sky and the dark shore. It reflects, sometimes, the belief of the hunters, and like Narcissus, captivates them with nothing more than their own convictions.
