“We’ve seen it, there’s no doubt about that” says Andreas Solvik to NRK.no.
Together with his friends Finn Nyhammer and Arvid Otterdal he was out on Lake Hornindal in Sogn & Fjordane on a short trip Wednesday this week.
All of a sudden they became aware of some ripples in the water, Fjordingen newspaper writes.
For decades there has been talk about the existence of a lake monster in Lake Hornindal, which is the deepest lake in Europe. At the deepest it’s 514 meter to the bottom and many people have wondered over the years what can be hiding in its depths.
Both he and Otterdal pulled out their mobile phone cameras and snapped a picture of what they saw. From the pictures you can see something lying on the surface with two arches.
“It happened very suddenly. But when we looked at the pictures we were sure that this must be the lake monster people have been talking about.”

Looks like a bent log or perhaps a broken tree branch to me. No known animals moves like this. Fish and snakes move side-to-side, not up and down.
