Weekly Photo Challenge: Twist

Not sure if this fits the challenge intent but here is one that certainly says twist to me.  We’ve been in and around the Grand Canyon for the last few days.  As any deranged (“twisted”) photographer would do, I got up at 4:30 am on two days to try and catch some good sunrise photos.  As it happens there were a few low clouds  and smoke from the Flagstaff/Sedona fires obscuring the first rays of sunlight so I tried some other types of photos.  One of the things that caught my eye was a juniper tree out on a point looking back into the sunrise,  I also was able to line up another juniper in the foreground to get some additional twisty branches.  These two trees against the backlit and diffused sunrise provided this unusual “twist” on a Grand Canyon photograph.
