Artist's Description

Exclusive picture, digitally altered, and produced by Chris exclusively for the UK’s Daily Mirror April Fool’s Day edition.

Look carefully and you can see how Chris has incorprated The Queen, the Duke of Einburgh, and Prince Charles, as if they are all part of this single, gnarled tree trunk! It had many thousands of readers fooled. The Mirror revelaed the truth behind the photo in the following day’s edition.

The image of a suitably-old, thick tree trunk was shot in the New Forest, then Chris spent a day digitally retouching it, to produce the final result.

And they say the camera never lies!!
