This is the familiar picture of a rolling green hill. Most of us have seen it because it is the default background image on Windows XP. It is such a dreamy picture that I always assume it is a computer generated image.
Turn out the scene is real. It is taken from the rolling hills not far from my home in Sonoma, California. Meet Charles O'Rear, the photographer who took this picture, and reminisce on the blissful scene that has graced many of our computer screens.
