I do, but they are very modest and I haven't downloaded the yet. We live on the far west side of Denver, with the foothills in the way, so the moon set before totality plus the sky was very bright by then. I'll post what I have in a couple hours. Fun stuff to see, in any case.

i saw this driving to work, made the 5am wake up a bit more enjoyable. I actually didnt even know there was going to be an eclipse, but it was pretty obvious when I saw it.

Fine shots here. It occurred to me (too late) that a vantage point such as Wondervu (E of Rollinsville) would have been perfect to capture shots like these.
