Don't peak. Hey!  I said DON'T PEAK.  I heard this trivia question from someone.  I finally researched it tonite and it's true.  So  I can confidently ask the question again:  What is the most viewed photo ever?  Give up? Ok, you can look now

 

According to Alafoto.com who also refers to Wikipedia- it is the wallpaper for your computer  that was included with Window's XP and it was a real landscape taken in Sonoma County, California.

Credit where it is due.  It was taken by pro photographer Charles O'Rear who lives out there.  I guess he also freelanced for Bill Gates' taking photos for stock photography company.

If you go to this website, you will see the original image, and what they did with it.  It's actually called "Bliss".

Now you can confuse and confound your friends with this question and be the life of your next party.  Trust me, you'll thank me for this someday.
