My, I do LOVE your twisty trees. :-)

I read all the previous comments and I seem to be the only one that thinks it looks like the aftermath of a forest fire, complete with a layer of ash on the ground, and the sky turned that eerie amber-ish color as the sun tries to break through the lingering smoke.
Yep, that's exactly what it looks like to me. Amazing effect you created with that processing of yours.
FAV
