About Me

Thank you Democratic Underground for keeping me sane for the last four years. I think I was probably the longest lurker here. I started following DU during the Dubya administration. I was first attracted to the "Top Ten Conservative Idiots of the Week." I've been following along ever since. I always felt guilty for not participating, but refrained from doing so because I already spend way too much time online. However, after recent events, I just can't sit back any longer. I had to log on and thank you folks for all that you do. I'm a retired TV newscast director with forty years experience and more than eighteen thousand broadcasts under my belt, most of them live. I now travel the country (when I can) shooting landscape, astro and wildlife photography. You can see some of my photos at Ross-Kestin.Pixels.com or on Instagram at @oldguywithacamera. Thanks again! Ross K. Grumpy Old Guy

For your viewing pleasure: The Blood Red Moon Lunar Eclipse

I was vey fortunate to be able to "shoot the moon" in the Eastern Sierra Nevada. It was an experience I won't forget. These are rough edits. I may be posting them again when I return from my camping trip and have a little more time. I hope you enjoy them.

Warning - Photo heavy - Some of my critter pics.

Hi folks,

I thought I would share some of my critter pics, since I'm ineligible for the contest. I'd like to point out that although many of these photos were shot in far off national parks or wilderness areas, quite a few of them were captured in my own backyard, neighborhood parks or on my morning walks.

Just for fun, see if you can guess my favorite image.

I hope you enjoy them.

Thanks for indulging me.

Get out there and shoot!

For your viewing pleasure

Here is a butterfly that I captured in my backyard yesterday. It was backlit by the late afternoon sun.

This is a testament to heavy photoprocessing. This is a heavily cropped image from a 45mp raw file, processed with Adobe Camera Raw and enhanced with Topaz SharpenAI and DeNoiseAI.
