Learning never exhausts the mind

Welcome to Lonewolf Online

Hello and Welcome to Lonewolf Online, the website of Tim Trott - photographer, astronomer and software engineer.

I'm originally from Bristol, England and I'm currently living a few miles from Glasgow, Scotland. I love travel and photography so naturally, I'm creative. I also love writing and over the years my blog has become part of my journey to see the world in a new way.

On my blog, you will find many articles and tutorials on a range of subjects from photography to astronomy, travel, computers, gaming and more. Learn how to program, take better photos, get started in astronomy, build some DIY projects and more.
