Taken at 5am on a dog walk round Loch Morlich, near Aviemore in Scotland, UK.
It was hard work getting a shot without 3 border collies bouncing around in it!

Thanks for all your help everyone, the reset fixed things for exactly 5 shots then the pink returned. My local camera shop says its a CCD issue and camera needs to be sent off for 3 weeks to hopefully fix it. I don't know if I can survive without my Pentax for that long lol!
I tried shooting RAW with auto WB but it didn't help. Also the LCD shows normal pics the pink then appears when I put them on PC.
I thought if i used daylight 5500K florescent lights I would be ok, I'll try LED's next.
I'm looking to buy a new Pentax for now then fix K10D later. I would love the K3 but I'd need to win the lottery first, so I've been looking at K5/K5ii/K5iis as possibilities.

Hi thanks for the quick response! I shot these in JPG using 2 florescent 5500K daylight lights, white balance set at (N) under florescent daylight setting. I have added 2 photos, one pre pinkness and the other obviously pink. I have used the same set up for weeks, same lights in same position and same camera settings. Since posting I found another post, re purple vignetting, suggesting a camera reset which I have now done and the pinkness seems to have gone. I will know for sure tomorrow when I have both lights set up again. Hopefully it will have worked and not just temporarily, as the local camera shop suggested.
