Sport Fishing-1906 by arvalis Sport Fishing-1906 by arvalis
This photo was sold to a collector in 1906 for $3.50 by an amateur photographer at Loch Ness. That value may seem small but by today's standards its roughly $85.00. The fisherman seen here is a veteran cryptid slayer, he is using a harpoon tied to a barrel of dynamite that will be lit by his apprentice. Once the creature is tagged it will flee in pain only to explode once out of reach of the boat. This photo was captured just before the animal was destroyed.

Poor lochness-beastie. What'd it ever do to them?

Aside from that, the splashes and the teeth of the pleiosaur(?) looks well-done.

So, a cross between Jaws (death by explosion) and Moby Dick...?

Pure awesomeness in this work right here.
Personally, I would have tied the explosive to the harpoon itself, but this works too.
