Spanish Serpent Talk 2

” A Pale Green Mermaid Blog “

So, here is a blow up of the end of the serpent tail.  It appears to have bony protrusions here as well –

Here, in another blow up of the middle of the animal it appears that there is a 2 pronged fin!

My conclusions are thusly, ( I was not satisfied with the sketch so you will have to do your own!) the animal is shaped like a plesiosaurus –

except only one set of fins not two as this fossil/skeleton shows.

Then add 2 horns on top of the head and, I believe, from the middle of the neck down along the back of the body to the end of the tail, there was a line of  bony protrusions.  not unlike a stegosaurus pictured below,

But the whole thing has a more dragon feel to it I think, such as  in this St. George and the Dragon painting –

and look! the bony protrusions along the back…..

In conclusion, I think we have a real old storybook dragon on our hands in Spain akin to what mariners of old told tales about after returning from months at sea.

Think about it…..

More Sea Monster Talk (Spain)

” A Pale Green Mermaid Blog “

This sea serpent that was found washed ashore In Spain approx. a week ago is a fascinating puzzle that I think may very well have ramifications with the Loch ness  monster / plesiosaurs puzzle.

So, the first foto is a blown up version of the original foto taken in Spain. ( look at the bottom of the foto collage of the original fotos ) I increased the exposure and warmed up the colors otherwise it is the same foto.

If you look at the head of this specimen it appears that it had a horse like structure and a long thick neck like a horse with a long snout similar to an abbreviated horse head.

There has been some question as whether the horns are real.  I think it is clear from this blow up that they are, see how  boney and pointy they are.

Now look down the neck at the bottom of the blow up.  There appears to be another spiky protrusion!  It casts a shadow.

Below the blown up foto of the spanish serpent is a is a foto of an oarfish found in Spain.  Some are saying it is an oarfish, I disagree.  The oarfish is flat, not round as the spanish serpent is.  Also you can easily see the oarfish has no horns or bony protrusions as the Spanish  serpent does.

Also look at the tail of the spanish serpent  in the middle foto of the originals (collage).  There is a series of bony protrusions at the tail!

Tomorrow the blow up of that tail and my sketch of what the Spanish creature might have looked like.

I will be having a few margaritas tonight to help me with the production of that drawing ( truly it will just be a sketch), after all it is almost Labor day!!!!

See you tomorrow …..

Sea Serpent Washes Up On Shore In Spain- Cousin Of Nessie?

” A Pale Green Mermaid Blog “

The sea serpent pictured below was found on the shore in Spain recently.  It was 13 feet long.  I find the horns quite interesting because I remember a report I read, where the eyewitness saw what they thought were ears on the Loch Ness monster. If you look down through the actual eyewitness accounts they are specific and detailed. The one I am thinking of was a person who was walking around the loch at dusk and came upon the Loch Ness animal.  It was stated that you could see the animal’s breath in the air in the form of steam.

Very very unusual…..

Have an fun-filled work week!

Concerning The Recent Photo Of The Loch Ness Monster, Or as I prefer calling it, NESSIE!

” A Pale Green Mermaid Blog “

Here is the pic, in case you have not come across it,

ht loch ness creature inset nt 120814 wblog Scottish Sailor Claims To Have Best Picture Yet Of Loch Ness Monster

If you look at an enlarged view of this foto, as I have, you can see to the right as you look at the foto- a series of wakes poss. from the animal trying to slow down it’s forward progress which is exemplified by the diagonal water patterns, on the left side of the animal.

If you look at the enlarged image you can see through shaded patterns a backbone and the top of a leg muscle on the side of body facing the camera.

Now, I make these assumptions from a cursory review, if the foto could be enlarged, then with the brightness of the foto adjusted it would be evident, or not, as to whether my assessment is accurate.

The foto appears to be a digital image  which is box-like when enlarged, if the foto was a silver foto you could enlarge it and see the light patterns much more clearly (A dot based image).

If someone would do this I believe we could put this puppy to bed! (puppy being -question does the Loch Ness Monster live!)

Anyone???

What does “put to bed” mean?

 Complete something and either set it aside or send it on to the next step, as in We put the magazine to bed at ten, or They said they’d put the whole project to bed at least a month ago. This expression, transferring nighttime retirement to other kinds of completion, was first applied to a newspaper, where it meant “send to press,” that is, start to print. [Mid-1900s]

UPDATE August 22, 2012,
 
To reiterate with the new image-
 
Here is my emphasized image of the one taken, I did not alter the image other than to saturate the color already there and play with the grey scale, the black and white already in the picture,
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
If you enlarge this foto you will see when I saturated the colors there that the body is a warm reddish color, the very backend is a cool green as in the neck where it enters the water – if you look at the edge of the hump it looks to me like a backbone and it is cool in color as skin over bone is, and near the back there is an indenting of the form where the leg would meet the bulk of the body,
it appears to me as a dense 3-D form-
 
now look at the water patterns around the form, you can see several wakes coming out from the form in different directions.
 
To me ,I see wakes that show it was moving forward then was trying to slow down to do something,
 
let me know what you think!
 
and above all have some fun with it ! -I feel it is a foto of some animal form ” elementary my dear Watson!”

Loch Ness Monster Fotos, UFO’s and Candy Apples

 ” A Pale Green Mermaid Blog “

 

This picture was discovered to be a hoax,

This picture was taken in 1933 by Hugh Gray

monster2.jpg A 1975 underwater photo by Rines appears to show the body, flipper, neck, and head of a large animal in Loch Ness.

From  www.loch-ness.org

Now you can decide, but if you have come across a UFO as I have in 1974, viewed at  midnight as I waited for my ride home -at college ( in a spitfire ahhh …those were the days…candy apples cracking in the breeze as cool tart apple juice ran down our chins all while bizzing through the Newtown countryside as your hair -mine and Jim’s long blonde hair, both wiped up in some kind of french twist whirlwind sports car quirk of nature, straight up – don’t know how that works – perhaps a spitfire enthusiast would know…anyway I digress) -waiting for his class to end, when what before my eyes should appear  but a sleigh and eight tiny rein …wait that’s not right… yes… I believe it was a flat-out, clear as a bell , UFO hovering above the tree tops that surrounded the campus, your regular sombrero type with red and green flashing lights around the band, so it lurched forward in 1/2 a sec, I, standing on my bench by now, fell backwards it was so quick then it dropped into the trees ,,,soon after a fellow came walking by… but if you have experienced a UFO  you realize the world is a very mysterious thing-

I say yes!! It exists! (there are many written accounts that are pretty hard to deny), so add it to your retirement to-do list – It’s on mine !!

Have Fun, Smile right now!

PGM

 It was a 7 speed -I think…lots of downshifting,

Now it was low- I have a Honda 95,  ( which a certain sector of the male population seem to be enamored of,  I hear comments such as cool, I bet it goes really fast as I sit at lights, my other honda- at the time I owned it- was listed in NY Times as the fastest is that a word? car in the world, when souped up… all of this is merely happenstance – the cars I own always seem to be of interest..Dodge dart 67 need I say more??? )

that is low, BUT,

The spitfire is LOWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW. maybe couple inches off the ground.

So…Triumph Blue 66?? think so.
