Water Slide Cone

...Up Close and Personal.

By this summer, another new hotel will open near Disneyland. It will be three blocks from our house. We can hardly wait for the traffic "flow", thanks to the hotel's Water Slide, and its appeal to families. It will be the second largest such slide in California.

This shot was taken with a Canon camera, which I'm returning to the store later today. Too many reasons to explain.

Exif: F Number: 5, Exposure Bias Value: 0.00, ExposureTime: 1/500 seconds, Flash: did not fire, compulsory flash mode, ISO: 100, White balance: Auto white balance, FocalLength: 17.48 mm, Model: Canon PowerShot SX530 HS

Great Strong colours, clarity & details in this picture. You'll be able to get a few shots of the ride when it's full maybe!!! I guess the traffic will be a bit of a bother!! Good luck with the camera return=^..^= #1649341

Good luck with the camera. I have never had any problems with any of my canons. I am too old for water slides. #11433871

That does not sound like progress especially when its knocking at your door. I can just imagine the noise and the traffic that will congest your area. Even getting a beautiful and colorful picture like this dosen't make it thrilling. The colors are gorgeous and the wired support adds a cool design along with shadows. If your not happy with the camera, might as well replace it with some you enjoy using. You take care my friend, be safe. #11433970

Hi Mary, I'm so happy to see that this beauty got a Staff Favorite.
I admired it before and I can't believe I forgot to comment. Sorry.
The design and colors are so attractive and the details super.
P.S. I know about the links to each person's Contest Winners, but not all of those got an All-Time EP. I thought you may have seen it somewhere else. But the confusion is now cleared :) Thank you! #11452372
