    Ranga is a term of endearment for red heads. It is a shortened form of the word "Orangutan", that big orange haired monkey/ape.
    Of course my caption was a little bit tongue in cheek and actually my wifes "current" hair colour some might has a shade of red to it, I prefer to think it is more Cabernet coloured.
    My wife was reading your explanation over my shoulder, and she (being a red head) was taken aback by you characterization of her as an Orangutan. So I guess you are right... red heads just get mad at you for no reason (she just hit me now).

    That's funny Pat.
    I generally don't like generalizations either. And that one that red heads tend to be quick tempered, is also a generalization, obviously.
    Ask your wife if she is familar with other terms of endearment here in Australia for red heads?
    Ginger
    Bloodnut
    Bluey- which is the opposite of red.
    But our flavour of the month here is definitely "ranga", I think they may even have a National Red Head/Ranga day now.

    She has only heard of "Ginger" before (that one originates from "Gilligan's Island" I believe), but I rather like "Bloodnut". Shhhhh here she comes... GOTTA GO!!!

    Run Pat run.
    Continuing with my exploration of hair colour. Obviously another natural example.

    Nice contrast and detail there Pat and the leading line and boat and lighthouse are compositionally perfect.

    This young girl was in a mood to party and kick her heels up. Just don't stand too close.

    Mark - What a great background and setting. I hope he did not drop her

    I think it's a great shot, but my first thought was I wanted to give them a nudge.. the sequence of the bride or bride groom combo falling into the water would have been an internet sensation.

    @Pat I really like your sailboat shot as well. Did you use a graduated filter? and mind me asking what you did in PP?
