Another Loch Ness Photo - The Seal Monster?

Lots of photos of the Loch Ness Monster (supposedly, at least) have been appearing online this year, and it doesn't seem like they will stop coming in anytime soon.

This is evidenced by the photo below, which is supposed to show a multi-humped monster in Loch Ness.
Monster! Wait… nope, seals.

Fox News reports:

"A picture snapped by an amateur photographer in Scotland has created a huge splash because it appears to show the fabled Loch ness Monster.
"The photographer is 58-year-old Ian Bremner, a worker in a whiskey warehouse who was in the area looking for red deer, Britain's South West News Service (SWNS) reported. On Saturday, he snapped the photo of what some say is Nessie when it - or whatever is in the picture - was close to the coast between two villages on the southeast side of the long lake.
"While there's no definitive word on what's in the image, it certainly shows something: perhaps a single creature of some kind, or maybe three seals, as some have suggested. The Scotsman newspaper has even headlined an article about the picture: 'Most convincing picture of the Loch Ness monster ever taken?'
"'This is the first time I've ever seen Nessie in the loch,' Bremner said, according to SWNW. 'I would be amazing if I was the first one to find her.'
"His sighting is just one of over a total 1,000 reported sightings of the mythical creature - the idea of which has captivated people for years and years.
"Purported sightings of the Loch Ness Monster continue to be hotly debated, with some described as hoaxes or just caused by natural phenomena, like logs."

While I think the Loch Ness Monster and some other lake monsters could be pinnipeds related to seals, I'm guessing what is in this photo is just that - a couple of seals.
