Photographer Peter Lik Sells Photo For a Cool Million Dollars

If you've sold photos as art, or even gotten asked to shoot a wedding or other event, you know how good it can feel to be recognized for your talents. You might also know how good it feels to get paid for all of that hard work. Peter Lik certainly does.

The renowned photographer has just sold one of his photographs for a whopping one million dollars.

The photo is entitled "One" and shows the banks of the Androscoggin river in New Hampshire. Lik describes the morning as foggy and calm until "the mist cleared, and a magical reflection in the river briefly appeared... I pressed the shutter - once - and then the scene vanished with the morning breeze, never to be seen again."

The buyer of the photograph completed the purchase in December and has asked to remain anonymous.
