Apparently the famous Windows XP “Bliss” background is a real, unaltered photograph

Windows presented an interview with photographer Charles O’Rear in this video, and then went to see the site where the photo was taken, in Napa. 

That first photo is, of course, “Bliss.” The second is what the hill looked like on the day that the Microsoft camera crew went there.
