Anyone know WHAT or WHERE this is???

I found this on stumbleupon and there's no description or anything. I think it's one of the most beautiful things/places I've ever seen and am dying to know where it is and what the purple plants or trees are called that are pictured here. Anyone have any ideas? I bet it's somewhere across the world, but now I need to add it on my list of places to go!
Here is the link where I found it in case anyone is wondering:$7e/
