I need my sunglasses - this is Powerful Pink, my daughter would have loved it when she was deeply into her pink and purple years (until about a year or two ago!!)

Anne from White Rock, Canada

Wow! This is lovely - great perspective - that's one great thing about using wide angle on shots like these - everything stays in sharp focus even at f4.5. We've got a Pink Palace hotel here, just down the road - almost at the border crossing - but its not so grand as this - still it's not a resort - but it is pink. I better get down there and take a picture ;)
