We say to the confused, Know thyself, as if knowing yourself was not the fifth and most difficult of human arithmetical operations, we say to the apathetic, Where there’s a will, there’s a way, as if the brute realities of the world did not amuse themselves each day by turning that phrase on its head, we say to the indecisive, Begin at the beginning, as if beginning were the clearly visible point of a loosely wound thread and all we had to do was to keep pulling until we reached the other end, and as if, between the former and the latter, we had held in our hands a smooth, continuous thread with no knots to untie, no snarls to untangle, a complete impossibility in the life of a skein, or indeed, if we may be permitted one more stock phrase, in the skein of life.

From Rafael about this image:
PANO / BLEND
I have always wanted to capture the reflection of the Milky Way in a lake, but strong winds during the night dominate the entire the region were I live. This night, fortunately, there were no winds blowing so the water was still, giving this mirror-like perfect condition for the shot. I have set-up my camera in the tripod and started to take pictures. As soon as I started, heavy clouds started to cover the sky almost ruining the chance of getting the shot. The clouds can still be seen in the right portion of the picture, but I finished just in time befre the sky was completely covered. The night was very dark as there was no moon in the sky so I had to use a higher exposure time for the foreground, and this is the cause of the star trails in the water, while the sky was shot with a shorter exposure time to get pinpoint stars.
The two brightest objects that can be seen under the Milky Way core and just above the mountain are the star Antares and the planet Saturn. This shot was taken in August/16 in the Itaitiaia National Park, Brazil.
