Bliss is photographer Charles "Chuck" O.

The photo itself has been uploaded to the digital image service Corbis created by Bill Gates himself and was selected by Microsoft as the default wallpaper of Windows XP in 2000. The software giant not only bought the right to use the photo as the background of Windows XP desktop, but also purchased the original film, so Microsoft also asked the photographer to deliver the negative. Microsoft paid the copyright fee for the photo. Although no specific details were provided, it was believed that the price was within six digits, so transporting photos and negatives needed very expensive insurance.
