“The most terrifying fact about the universe is not that it is hostile but that it is indifferent; but if we can come to terms with this indifference and accept the challenges of life within the boundaries of death — however mutable man may be able to make them — our existence as a species can have genuine meaning and fulfillment. However vast the darkness, we must supply our own light.”

-Stanley Kubrick

      Thanks Jo, I helped my Dutch buddy take that photo. It was a long exposure and to get the foreground light we had to flicker a flashlight around to create it haha. Not hi-tech but effective.
