Surreal Door to Nowhere Spotted in the Alps


On a mountain, high in the Northern Limestone Alps, located in Bavaria, Germany, sits a lone door. Photographer James Hilgenberg captured this stunning shot of the entrance way as it leads to a view of breathtaking beauty.

"I saw this door in the Alps this year," he wrote on National Geographic's Your Shot website. "Thinking about words to the picture a Beatles song came to my mind. 'Nowhere Man' could be living behind this door.

"Update: Now I came across the perfect song to this picture: The Alan Parsons Project, A Dream Within A Dream. 'All that we see or seem is but a dream within a dream. ' We come to the world from nowhere to, in the end, go nowhere."

More information on the door installation can be found at Alpinien.

  • Or is it a door to... everywhere?

    Here is a similar example:

    This is a gate into the temple, into God's presence.

    Enter.

  • 'All that we see or seem is but a dream within a dream. ' is a straight steal from EA Poe.... "A Dream Within A Dream"

    O God! can I not save
    One from the pitiless wave?
    Is all that we see or seem
    But a dream within a dream?
