The Most Famous Desktop Wallpaper Ever Is a Real, Unaltered Photo by Charles O Rear via Slate

Interesting interview and back story of the famous Windows XP wallpaper that many thought were photo shop but it turns out to be a real picture taken in Napa California by photographer Charles O’Rear.

Article also includes video interview with the photographer and the writers attempt to take the same pictures in the same location in Napa all these years later.

I am curious since the photographer mentioned he took 4 photos that day, what do the other three look like? 🙂
