foreground 682

When I saw this theme listed, I thought it would be one of the easier ones to fulfill.  I’m surprise at how much trouble I’m having finding both an interesting foreground and background.  I think this one does the trick.

Does anyone know what the tree is?  I have just wasted an hour (or more) trying to figure it out.  I’m beginning to think it is not a native Arizonian tree. Let  me know if you need a close-up to help identify it.
