One of the Pleasures of Living in Seattle

I took these two pictures in our bedroom the other evening, probably around 8:00pm. This is sunlight, shining in the northern window of our bedroom. Yes, that's right--in the summer, the sun rises in the northeast, and sets in the northwest, having traveled about 3/4 of the way around the sky. The flip side is that in the winter, the sun never leaves the south.
