Spectacular Sunsets From My Rooftop
On The Roof Sunsets are Nourishing
One of the benefits of living up off the ground is the dynamic quality of sunsets. Who can resist the sunset that clings to the last rays of daylight!
Rising above neighboring roofs and lights, the sky makes emphatic statements in my nieghborhood. Most of my rooftop shots look like they could be in a remote rural setting!

City Sunset Through the Window on Your Wall
