Yeah I agree, 1000px is a lot of space, and I'd question the use of 
stretching an image to that size (I'd personally do:
<div style="height: 300px>&nbsp;</div>
or multiple <br>s)

But leaving the white space in I think can be worth it (couldn't access 
the site to see). It's often the only way to ensure that a anchor link 
actual appears in the top of the window, and is common in FAQ lists and 
such. Ascetically ugly, yes; more usable, probably.

Like to hear how others have dealt with the problem...
