The Most Seen Picture in the World

18 Apr

Believe it or not, it is right around the corner from here. Just head out 121 toward Napa and on your left, you’ll see it.






Well, it doesn’t quite look like that. Because of some photography and film tricks, the colors come out.  With some editing, the vines were wiped out of the picture. But that is the hillside in the famous wallpaper of Windows XP and it is right here in Sonoma County!

Here is a short video of how it came about being the standard image of Windows XP.

Being that this is the time of year where the hills are emerald green, I thought this would be a fun blog for Friday! Have a great weekend!
