Is this a picture of the chest ?

Is this a picture of the chest ?
.
I took a trip in 2014, to the general area in my solution. I did not have a precise location at that time (had not figured some of the clues), so did not expect to recover the chest. It was more exploratory, and just used it as a vacation.

I did take quite a few photos. Over the last year, I have resolved the issues with the few missing clues, so am directed to an exact spot. I went back to my photos from 2014, I have a picture in that area. I zoomed, and post the following below – it is within about 15 feet or so, of that exact spot. It also seems to agree with other info I have previous mentioned, related to the chest being in a secured spot, under an overhang. (those findings I posted several months ago, before seeing this zoomed image).

I cannot tell if this is a chest, or an optical illusion (water reflection, etc.). This size of the outline in the photo is about right, because the larger picture has objects I can use to scale (I don’t want to give away the surrounding area).

The image is grainy, because it is a zoom and I think I was using about 6 MB resolution at the time. This is much less than 1% of the photo.

I know it's easy to be fooled in this chase, so am trying to get some objective reviews.

Thanks,

Thanks, PL289. I'm interested in shape and features, so appreciate your comment. Just to be sure, you're commenting on the object under the (what looks like a sheet metal) overhang? The under water part I'm not sure about yet.

Haven't seen you posting much. You were going to open an antique store?

Forrest took a lot of precautious to make sure moisture didn't get in the chest.
So why in the world would he place it in the water and exponentially increase the risk of that happening?

A little too elongated. The chest is more of a square than a rectangle.
Shhh they aren't listening.

Let's start a new theory, say Fenn discovered a chest hidden in the water, it was airtight and contained something really epic, but there was enough room say 10x5 left in the chest.
So in order to replicate the thrill of opening the chest he found one of his own, it certainly changed and fits the " in there" in the first stanza.

So a hint from Fenn would be nesting dolls, a jar in a chest in a chest.

That is an interesting object and yields the time to go see what it is!! But it is definitely not the chest of FF thrill of the chase!!

@astree don't you think ff cares about the TC and its contents? If he does he would never put it in water.

A friend of mine suggested the chest might be wrapped with something to keep it closed... not a bad idea adds new dimension to "bob" wire
