SkyWatch Friday: Sunset

Clouds come floating into my life, 
no longer to carry rain or usher storm, 
but to add color to my sunset sky.
~ Rabindranath Tragore

Almost every house we've ever owned has had a backyard that faced west.  If you have a house with a west-facing backyard, you know how uncomfortable it can be in the afternoon when the hot sun shines through the windows and on the patio or deck.  The good news, of course, is that you get to see beautiful sunsets almost every day.

Over 200 people had signed up for SkyWatch Friday when I signed on today.  To get links to their sites, click here.

Yes. West facing rooms are hell in the summer but so warm in the winter.

Nice sunset, one of the good days to be on the deck, huh?

Ours face south, but we still get lots of PM sun. Too many trees to see a sunset though.

This is a beautiful sky.

Beautiful sunset - great shot for SWF!

Beautiful! I like a west or a south facing house. It's an important criteria for me. I need the afternoon sun and the warmth. An east facing bedroom is about the worst thing imaginable (IMO).

That's a good one - interesting light behind those clouds.
