    If you rotate the image in photoshop to correct the leaning of the trees in the far right background the image is far less frightening. Yes it still has impact because you are on a cliffside road but a clockwise rotate on a knoll in your front lawn can look impressive when not cropped correctly for horizon. Ya lost me!
