Prince of Wales Country Champion

This is David Wilson, Farm Manager at the Duchy Farm Estate in Gloucestershire, chosen by HRH The Prince of Wales as a Country Champion for his guest edited issue of Country Life Magazine, celebrating his 70th birthday.

Whilst lying on the grass to capture this portrait, I spotted the emergence of a gap to the right behind David;  seizing the moment and the potential for a perfectly framed image, I rolled quickly (through a freshly laid cowpat) so that the gap was directly behind him.     My coat still bears hints of the evidence but it was worth it!
