Sometimes titles help and sometimes they are spoilers.

In this case I think the title helps. Just enough of a clue to suggest interpretations of the image. The tree becomes a signpost that has lost its signs. Ominously, it points in the opposite direction to that faced by the woman. It is getting dark. Mist is settling in and already we can't see the horizon clearly. Now we interpret the phone as an attempt to orientate or find a path.

This is pushing things a little but there is the merest suggestion of a grave in the sand.

The alarm bells haven't gone off at this point but the shot is effectively conveying disquiet.
