Break the rules: Travel Landscape

Challenge #3 in the Travel and Sports series. Hosted by bikinchris.
Challenge has finished
This idea is totally stolen from a post by Thom Hogan: Break the photography rules, but make a better image by doing so. No rule of thirds? no problem. Best shot wins, but break the (composition) rules okay? Break as many composition rules as you want. Sometimes, you need to know that the rules won't work. VOTERS: Vote low for any image that has perfect rule of thirds, balance or imbalance by way of rule of thirds, etc. The more perfect the composition fits the (normal) rules, the lower you should vote.

Yosemite Valley after an unusually heavy snow fall for that time of year. Snowed all night and cleared up the next day...I was the most giddy amateur photographer you could imagine, but I wasn't prepared (skills or equipment) to tackle this opportunity...I took this picture out of frustration...I wanted the enormity of the clouds and the valley, but my 28mm wasn't wide enough...so break the rules. It make me think that a bird might see such a view when turning to the right.
