Partial solar eclipse as seen from Denver

Quite a treat to be able to witness this celestial event.

To shoot a picture of an eclipse properly, you really need special filters and a more powerful lens than what I have. Both are expensive and so I improvised as far as the filter goes and taped welder’s glass to the front of my lens.  The end result wasn’t too bad and you can even see sun spots on the surface.

This was taken about 15 minutes before the eclipse maximum as clouds intruded on the main event. 🙁
