This has to be my favourite forest in Ireland, on a recent visit the light wasn't suited to photography so I shot some video instead. I try to visit as often as I can regardless of the weather or season.
It turns out I'm a tree pornographer! Well, at least according to Hannah at the 'tree porn' blog which outted me a couple of years ago. So I've done some research and I'm glad to say I'm safely on the soft-core end of the scale. The technical term is arborphilia and is described as having a special fondness for trees (soft core) The hard core end of the scale is referred to as dendrophilia which is sexual attraction to trees, often leading to sexual intercourse, often referred to among deviants as "going green". This includes attraction to both gymnosperms and angiosperms. Some arborphiles are also attracted to bryophytes; however, this symptom is less frequent. Oftentimes, an arborphile will claim saplings as his or her own offspring. Arborphiles gave rise to the phrase "morning wood," and can be observed in their natural habitat of national parks during nocturnal flights of fancy.
