This photo caused phones to crash!

This is a picture of a beautiful sunset in St Mary Lake, Montana. But when this picture is set as the wall paper in some Android phones, it caused them to crash. Why?

Because the beautiful combination of colours required the phones to compute how to display the “colour space”. The computational combination was a scenario that the software Developers did not envisage and resulted in the phones crashing. Interesting phenomenal. Qualifies for my fun fact category.
