"Ever since I have dedicated my life to seeing Nessie again and this time I am ready with my camera. For the past 23 years Steve has carefully studied the waters of the Loch in the hope of catching a glimpse of his beloved Nessie.
But Steve couldn't believe his eyes when he caught a glimpse of Nessie after just 18 months of living on the banks of Loch Ness.
Steve said: "I was sitting on the shore near the Fort Augustus end of the Loch when something went past the bay, through the water.
"It was like a torpedo shot and it had some weight behind it, hitting through the waves.
"Nothing in Loch Ness could create a disturbance like that – apart from Nessie. "I just sat there in amazement. It was the moment I had always been waiting for and I am kicking myself for not taking a photo.
"Since then I have been by the Loch with my camera poised, every day, come rain or shine. I won't let an opportunity like that pass me by again."
