Windows wallpaper photo - where taken?


[link to this post]
 
A friend with a Windows 10 laptop has as his wallpaper a scene of a country road winding its way through hilly countryside. Lots of green grass either side of the road. It would be a great road to ride a motorbike on. Could be in Scotland, though could also be in a lot of other places.

I'm fairly sure he didn't download it but chose one of the supplied images.

I can't find such an image on either of my 2 Win 10 PCs, nor can I find it on the web.

I'm trying to find the picture and where it was taken.

I'm sure I found where, for example, a wallpaper photo of a ruined castle on a headland was shot, that one was in the UK, but I can't find a web site that'll give me the answer in either of these cases.

Edit: Just found the castle wallpaper was on Windows 7.

Unless you can provide a link to the image, I don't see how we can help you.

Nearest I can find in the official wallpapers is this: https://kbdevstorage1.blob.core.windows.net/asset-bl...

It's not really got the green grass you describe, but it would be a great road to ride on.

... but not to meet an agricultural vehicle coming in the other direction.

Makes the ride that little bit more exciting!

You're more likely to meet a herd of sheep.
