The mountain scenery spread out before me was among the finest I had ever seen: more than 250 meringue-like peaks folding into the distance. Ice Q, a striking, three-storey glass building that gleamed in the sun like a melting ice cube (hence the name) presided at the top of the windblown 3,048m summit of Gaislachkogl.
And I wasn't the only one to be so captivated by it.
Last year, the production team of the new 007 film, Spectre, had been scouring the Alps looking for a lair fit for a Bond villain, when their search ended here.

Yvonne passed the camera to Michael while he was passing by Berlin during his Ultimate Train Challenge. As you can see his photos cover a large area going from Russia to Vietnam.The shoot was shrouded in secrecy (what else would you expect from the world's No 1 spy, and the famously tight-lipped movie franchise? But Norbert, like most locals, was convinced that mountaintop Ice Q would be the ultimate hideaway for Spectre baddie Franz Oberhauser, played by Christoph Waltz.Despite being one of the best restaurants in the Otztal Valley (the longest in the region) and one of the most innovative architectural landmarks in the Alps, it hasn't always been such a slick spot.After all, the Sun is hot, and if you venture too close… And such was the fate of Comet SWAN, discovered just a few days ago as it plunged headlong into the seething fires of the Sun. That was made from images taken by NASA’s SOHO satellite.In fact, the comet is named SWAN because it was first seen in the SOHO SWAN camera, designed to look for ultraviolet light coming from hydrogen.Here’s the thing: no comet has ever been seen before in that camera, including the phenomenally bright comet Lovejoy from a few months ago.
