Is it the spider in the background operating? Edit: I forgot the spider operates only in circles there is no down movement, in which all the cars are close to the ground. *** Edited 3/1/2005 11:28:28 PM UTC by WILLDOG***
Judging from the color of the leaves and the bare trees I'd say the photo was taken at the end of the season and that the park got an early start on the off-season rehab/maintenance of the ferris wheel.
Have you tried looking at Coasterbuzz images before? Most of the time this problem occurs because your security software interferes with how your browser accesses images. There should be an option to change how the software manages referring URL's or something of that nature--do a search in the Suggestions forum, there are several topics discussing the matter in more detail.
