Ooh - maybe it's somewhere she wasn't supposed to be...

The lighting in the pic didn't come from the camera, it came from left of the photographer. As if the tree is lit by artificial lighting all the time, as in a permanent display of some sort. Like some place displaying trees/shrubbery trained to grow in certain ways, perhaps.

However from what I was able to find, my understanding is that the photographer actually took this photo quite a long time ago, and it was just sitting around for years before The Internet finally took notice of it.
Point being, even assuming the tree did once look like this (not that I'm doubting it, let me clarify) it most likely no longer does. Even if it still exists at all.
(The photo was also, FWIW, apparently taken by her while she was travelling around on vacation. So it's possible she doesn't even remember exactly where the tree was - I pretty much stopped my investigation after getting that far.)
