You click on the Bing Maps option, click birds eye, zoom, and if you can get a good view of it (you may have to rotate the view), screenshot it (hit the print screen key) and the paste in into microsoft paint and save as a jpeg.

How do you get those ariel view shots? By plane or Google Earth? In either case, all I can say is impressive and hope you can get some more in that area. There's over 3 dozen through truss bridges within 100 square miles. :-)
