Monster Breath, video, no overdubs (04min. 20 sec)

Morgawr (meaning sea giant in Cornish), is a plesiosaur-like cryptid purported to live in the sea near Falmouth Bay, Cornwall.

First sighted in 1906, various theories have been proposed for as to the identity of this sea serpent, ranging from a hoax or mistaken identity, to the suggestion that the creature is a surviving species of Plesiosaur or that it is a previously undiscovered species of long necked seal.

In this video (captured in '08) the artist imagines he has found Morgawr's nest. The sea sprays, the rocks breathe, creepiness fills the air.
