Euphoria is the name of the default machine wallpaper of Microsoft's Windows XP working framework. It is a picture of a moving green slope and a blue sky with cumulus and cirrus mists. The scene portrayed is in the Los Carneros American Viticultural Area of Sonoma County, California, United States.

Previous National Geographic photographic artist Charles O'rear, an inhabitant of the adjacent Napa Valley, took the photograph on film with a medium-group Polaroid while on his approach to visit his sweetheart in 1996. While it was broadly accepted later that the picture was digitally controled or even made with programming, for example, Adobe Photoshop, O'rear says it never was. He sold it to Corbis for utilization as a stock photograph. A few years after the fact, Microsoft engineers picked a digitized adaptation of the picture and authorized it from O'rear.

Through the one decade from now it has been asserted to be the most seen photo on the planet amid that time. Since it was taken, the scene in it has changed, with grapevines planted on the slope and field in the closer view, making O'rear's picture difficult to copy for now. That has not halted different picture takers from attempting, and some of their endeavors have been incorporated in workmanship shows.
