Gimme a hug!

Not only does this tree seem like its "arms" want to hug you, the tree itself is hollow, so if you climb inside it also feels like a hug...

 

Real tree hugger. :-)

There's a legend that the (in)famous rogue knight Erasmus Lueger aka Erazem Predjamski is buried under this tree.

 

Perhaps that made the tree grow so weird. :-)

 

(I mean the shape, not the colour - the latter was due to HDR processing. Light that day was very camera-unfriendly, so I had to do a HDR to bring out the details without burning out the background.)
