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.
