The photographer behind Bob Dylan's 1966 'Blonde on Blonde' artwork has blamed 'really cold weather' for the blurred cover photo of Dylan, which has been a mystery to fans and critics ever since it was released.

For years many have wondered whether Dylan and the photographer Jerry Schatzberg were shooting drugs when the photograph was taken-something which Schatzberg has dismissed as 'not true'.

The photographer has now said that the blurred image wasn't taken intentionally, but as the result of his hands shivering in the biting cold weather of New York in February.

He has also said that it was Dylan's choice to use the blurred image for the now famous album cover.
