Yes, that is a sweet looking canopy. It is the roof of the outdoor stage being built at Denver Botanic. This is a late May photo, and even though it can snow that late in Denver, the vegetation is white because this is an infrared photograph, not because of snow. The only recommendations I have for a home-use canopy is 1) get one with an insulated roof to reduce heat penetration from the sun, and 2) it's good for the "skirt" along the edge of the roof to come down as far as possible, otherwise there is no protection from the sun coming in at an angle. Also, more upright legs seem to work better than angled legs. If the legs are angled, then the actual size of the roof canopy is actually smaller and you have less shade. Good luck!

That's a sweet looking canopy. It looks pretty cold out there, though! Does the canopy protect you from the snow? I've been thinking I'd like to purchase one for myself. Would you recommend it?
