My mum has a balcony. It looks north west, over the Firth of Forth and Fife (and more immediately, over a flour mill that dominates the local skyline). There is a lovely mix of buildings, from traditional tenements with turrets to modern flats, and the the dock where cruise ships come in.
Sunsets from here are stunning (even with the flour mill in the way!). The clouds this evening lined up into perfect rays. Unfortunately the clouds continued to thicken, and eventually blotted out the sky, but it was lovely while it lasted.
