Nature scenes have been a common subject of photography. They never fail to capture the attention of the people. One of the most spectacular nature scenes is the Milky Way and you can’t deny that photos of them are always worth wasting time with, even if all you do is just stare at them.

A photographer from Christchurch, New Zealand has perfectly captured the Milky Way on his camera. His name is Rob Dickinson and he is not your ordinary photographer because he times his subject to make sure he captures them at their finest moments.

Here are some of the shots Dickinson took in his many years of chasing the Milky Way. The photos are so amazing, some people may think they are fake, but they are not. He is just that amazing.

That is a million dollar photo right there.

Dickinson is originally from England but found New Zealand as his new home after he moved there a few years ago. He thinks New Zealand is great for astrophotography. He has so many years of photography experience under his belt and it shows in the photos he takes. They are all lovely!

So February's here again... and you know what that means, Valentine's Day is just around the corner! And although gifts are not really the essence of celebrating love, somehow it has been a tradition to give our special someone a gift. Or perhaps, you are single and want to convey your tender feelings to that person you've been crushing on forever.

Thinking what gift to give can be difficult, and while some opt to just buy pre-made gifts, others prefer to put more effort in it by making hand-made crafts. Personally-knitted items such as scarves, bonnets, socks etc... are some of the go-to gift items you can choose from. Especially in winter countries, a knitted gift will not only convey your warm feelings of love for that special person, it can also literally make them warm on those cold winter days and think of you!

Handmade gifts are very sweet and thoughtful!

What if you were born with the soul of an artist who wouldn't let any disability prevent a burgeoning talent from bursting forth?

The ones created by Michaelangelo, Vincent Van Gogh, Pablo Picasso, Rembrandt, Salvador Dali and Andrew Wyeth to name a few can fetch for millions of dollars. Theirs are masterpieces that use techniques that are worthy of praise and well, monetary compensation.

The list of paintings below however got us scratching our heads. They are simple to say the least and lacking in uhm, color. We're no Da Vinci but we do know how a plain painting looks like, never mind the fact that most of them, if not all, are abstract in nature. But hey, despite this unprecedented detail, these paintings happen to be worth millions and millions of dollars. Perhaps we're really just not great at deciphering the story behind abstract expressionisms such as these masterpieces.

Apparently, they're worth a lot of money and people bought them to be part of their private art collections. We'll stop blabbering on and just show you the paintings that fetched an insane amount of money:
