It could also be that while it looks like the satellite is pointing straight up, it might really be at an 85 degree angle or something like that.
Depending on where the photographer was, you might get the illusion of a slightly different angle than what the satellite is really pointing to.
Having said that, I also think that from the picture it appears to be pointing straight up. Both the geosynchronous satellite idea and the
maintenance idea make sense to me. If possible, try to get a pic of this site taken at a different time. If the dish is still pointing straight up,
it's probably facing a geosynchronous satellite. If it's tilted, it was probably under maintenance.
