Floating a navigation arrow over an image

I am trying to get the arrow in the linked image (http://imgur.com/nbftih3) to float above the photo on the right side of the screen and sit at the center of the right side.

Any suggestions on how i could make this happen?

What about using a position offset if the margin property doesn't work.

imf[src*="arrow] {
  left: 50px;

I'm assuming the containing image is a relative display property. That should mean your absolute arrow image shouldn't move from the space of the main image. :-)
