Viewed every day by millions of people across the globe, Bliss is possibly the most viewed picture of all time.

In case you've never seen a computer before, it's a rendered image of a landscape (actually taken from a real photograph of a range of hills in Napa County, California) that is used as the default desktop wallpaper for Windows XP.

If you're a fan of the Windows operating system and can't bear to be away from it for too long, then this mobile wallpaper version of it could be just for you. It's a small-scale reproduction of the original in the form of an animated GIF, allowing you to watch the clouds float along your screen.

OK, so the animation is a little jerky and crude, but this wallpaper offers a good way to pretend your phone is a Windows computer.

Bliss is the name of a BMP image produced from a photograph of a landscape in Napa County, California, east of Sonoma Valley. It is so named because it contains rolling green hills and a blue sky with stratocumulus and cirrus clouds. The image is used as the default computer wallpaper for the "Luna" theme, which is included with Microsoft Windows XP.

The photograph was taken by the professional photographer Charles O'Rear, a resident of St. Helena, Napa County, for digital-design company HighTurn. O'Rear has also taken photographs for Bill Gates' private Seattle stock photography company Corbis and Napa Valley photographs for the May 1979 National Geographic Magazine article Napa, Valley of the Vine.
