I shot the Ogopogo Lake Monster
Posted By: little laker, 07-07-2009, 04:33 PM

I live close to the Okanagan Lake, in British Columbia Canada, which is known for it's lake monster, The Ogopogo.
see here

This lake monster is said to live across the lake from a small city I used to live in called Peachland.
Anyways I was driving by Peachland today, when I saw the traffic backed up. I was wondering what the commotion was, until I saw this swimming.

Thankfully I had the DSLR with me, along with my 300mm f4 screwmount lens I used for the shot.

While at speed they could have easily been mistaken as lake monsters, so I may have actually captured the Ogopogo on camera.

That sucker looks scary to me. Hope I don't run into him on Galveston Bay!

Stu you'd better get that picture to the National Inquirer. I see a book and movie deal in the makings for you.
