Photo of the Day: Rustic Bench

CU photo gallery user keithkeyser creatively turns branches and sticks into remarkable wooden creations such as this courting chair. Notice the rich textures in the grain of the wood. What a perfect place to laze around with a book on a sunny afternoon — or gaze into the eyes of your sweetheart on a cool summer evening! This isn't Keith's only handiwork­­. He features a whole collection in his gallery, Keith's Rustic Wood Creations. All of his pieces have a partcularly woodland quality to them, and many seem as if they grew straight from the trees themselves. Thanks for sharing, Keith!
