the restaurant at the end of the universe

Have you ever read Douglas Adams’ “Hitchhiker’s guide to the galaxy” (or heard the BBC radio show)? This restaurant at the beach of St. Peter-Ording reminded me of “Milliways”, the “restaurant at the end of the universe” on the Frogstar World B. The story says that viewing through the windows of this restaurant you can watch the break-up of the universe every evening, made possible due to time warps. A really fascinating idea …. 🙂

(Now I also remember this passage: When leaving the restaurant, Zaphod and Ford steal a spaceship, which turns out to be a stuntship belonging to Disaster Area, programmed to dive into a star to provide backing effects for a rock concert. LOL So funny, have to read the books again.)

    Sick photo my friend!
    I knew immediately when I saw this on PixyBlog’s home page that this photo was yours. I love the detail in the sky, the stormy blue color as well as the feeling of movement. Beautifully captured.
    Also, great find. I mean come on, a place like this with a sky like that. What an amazing opportunity.
    As always, clever use of HDR. The exposure control remains at its upmost, of course what else would I expect.
    Great post, and congrats on your success on the Photoblogs.org Hot List, you deserve the recognition!

  2. Thank you all for your kind comments!
    @Mark, well that was a stunning scene indeed! When I came down to that beach and saw this house I knew instantly how the final image would look like. That’s wonderful. That’s why I love photography.
