Where did this image come from?

I've got a client who has found an image on the web that she wants to use for her business cards. I'm confident that it's out there somewhere in a royalty free dynamic, but I can't find it.

The image is featured on a blog. It looks and smells like a stock image, but I couldn't find it.  You can see it at http://www.bestdrugrehabilitation.net/cocaine-addiction-treatment/. It's the "tranquil rocks" black and white picture.

Any ideas on how to locate the vendor of a particular photo? I was wondering if there wasn't some kind of signature on a photo, regardless of it's web address, that could be referenced. I don't know, I'm just reaching for something.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I found it not long after I was going through some of the earlier responses and noticed the title of the image was "inner peace." I went through istockphoto using that as my search criteria and found it. But I now know about how to search for an image using the google dynamic! That's pretty cool!

Thanks everybody!

I use Tineye http://www.tineye.com/ to search for image matches.  It found 88 matches to that image.
