https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bliss_(image)

 

The fascinating story behind the default Win XP wallpaper.  Charles O'Rear a former National Geographic photographer took the photo on a large format camera & made something like $100,000 for the image.  The article includes a large Bliss image, & two other photos showing what the hill looked like several years on.   It is wine country & all the vines had been ripped out due to a disease affecting grape vines.  

 

If you want a nice genuine retro Windows wallpaper this is an excellent copy.
