This is the first in a series of the
wonderful bridge that was featured in
a previous image titled "Support".

I'm so sorry I am unable to post at
the moment, the virus has pretty much
made posting impossible. It crashes
both windows and fire-fox every few
minutes. Very frustrating!

Beautiful Sandra!!!!! #5523579

Steven E. Ray February 20, 2008

Nothing better than a long perspection when fence or railing is involved :) Nicely captured and uploaded despite your sick computer. Hope you knocked it out! I switched to Kaspersky in 2007 because it is the best computer defense to date. Viruses and Trojans can be darnright mean. #5523619

Sandra R. Alvey February 20, 2008

Thank you so much Heather and Steven!! I"m so happy you both liked this image!

Steven I've been to Kaspersky, and tried to do their online system check. The virus won't allow it. I'm looking around for some sort of freeware that I can use, since money is kind of tight right now. I had Active Virus Shield, and it worked ok but it missed this nasty booger that I'm infested with at the moment. Very frustrating! #5523701

Dianna Hauf February 21, 2008

wow, a fantastic capture!!! Incredible POV, lines, and B&W tones!!! I am soooo sorry you have an icky virus! I almost lost over 3000 images last october/november time frame! Scared the bejeebers out of me! Lots of work to clear it but thankfully it did get cleared with very little loss! Hope your outcome is the same!!! All my best Sandra!!! #5529178

Sandra R. Alvey February 22, 2008

Thank you so much Nolax and Dianna!

Nolax I'm using Active Virus Shield. It's the free-ware version though. I've been searching for something that might have more updated definitions. #5535095
