THE STORY BEHIND THE PHOTOGRAPH

David RossSometimes language creates interesting misunderstandings and much amusement. In Canada, where I used to live, the 'last spike' joining the eastern and western lines of the very first trans-continental railway was driven at a spot in the middle of the Rockies called Craigellachie, which is pronounced 'Craig-a-latchee'. On my first visit to the Cairngorms I researched places to photograph and read that the nature reserve at Craigellachie, outside Aviemore, was incredibly scenic. Armed with this vague knowledge and no idea of local geography I went to the tourist information centre in Aviemore and in my distinctly North American accent asked for directions to 'Craig-a-latchee'. The helpful man at the desk looked at me with an air of complete incomprehension. 'Where?'. I repeated my request, this time feeling very self conscious. His expression was baffled, then a light of understanding broke across his face. 'Ah,' he said in thick Scottish accents, 'Craigellechie' The loose phonetics of his version resembled 'Cra-gell-a-key'. 'Er, yes,' I said, suitably abashed. I'm happy to report that from that point on my visit to Craigallachie was a smashing success. The autumn colours were spectacular, and I enjoyed wandering around the quiet woodlands for hours.David Ross Photography signature
