Inconsistent rotations with \sidewaysfigure

In my .tex document I'm largely using \sidewaysfigure. However, this results pictures with inconsistent placement and direction of included pictures and captions. By inconsistent I mean that figures and captions are not rotated to one side always (eg, to the right). EG, on page 1 the caption is on the left side, and on page 2 on the right side.

Code using \sidewaysfigure is standard: `

 \documentclass[a4paper,11pt]{book}
     \usepackage{a4wide}
     \usepackage{amsmath, amsthm, amssymb}
     \usepackage{url}
     \usepackage[algoruled,vlined]{algorithm2e}
     \usepackage{graphicx}

     \usepackage[american]{babel}
     % for nice tables
     \usepackage{booktabs}
     % end for nice tables

     \usepackage{units}

     \usepackage{makeidx}
     \makeindex  


     \usepackage[usenames,dvipsnames]{color}

   % for shaded table cells
   \usepackage{colortbl}

   % for eps to pdf converting
   \usepackage{epstopdf}

   % for multirow option in the tables
   \usepackage{multirow}




   % for using subfloat
   %\usepackage{subfig}
   % end for using subfloat

  \usepackage[semicolon]{natbib}

   \usepackage{fancybox}

   \usepackage{xcolor}
   \usepackage{framed}

   \usepackage{rotating} 
   \begin{document}
     \begin{sidewaysfigure}[]   

     \centering 
       \begin{tabular}{c|c|c}
      \hline
      \includegraphics[scale=0.7]{a.pdf}& 
      \includegraphics[scale=0.7]{b.pdf}& 
      \includegraphics[scale=0.7]{c.pdf} \          \hline
      $t=0$&$t=2$&$t=4$\         \end{tabular} 
     \vspace{0.5cm}
        \caption[ada]{ text text text text} 
   \end{sidewaysfigure}
   \end{document}`

I wonder if there is a simple option with \sidewaysfigure that would enforce the whole thing (pics and captions) to be rotated for 180 degrees.
