Composition: The World Askew

Challenge #16 in the Ways of Seeing series. Hosted by jezsik.
Challenge has finished
Traditionally, photos are always taken level with the horizon. That's because that's the way we see the world ... but it's not always the way we feel about the world. An image with a tilted horizon is disturbing to our senses, but that's exactly why it can be powerful. Show us an image that gains power through a tilted angle. (Note Addition rules)
