''Beautiful writing & images''

David Lintern writes words & takes pictures about landscape, self-powered travel and environment. He's gone from getting stuck in quicksand in a farmer's field in Wrexham as a youngster, nightly wanders around an abandoned brick-works in Croydon as a teenager, to getting lost in many of the pointy bits of the UK and Europe as an adult. He picked up the rudiments of photography from his step-father and learnt how to sleep outside as a boy scout. He lives in Glasgow with his young family and splits his time between the personal, editorial & commissioned work you find here, & editing outdoor magazines.
