My dad recently took this photo at a stream behind my our house. it was a 2 second exposure with the canon 50d. we are having trouble figuring out why the arch of water droplets is there. shouldn't it be a smooth line since its a long exposure? it seems to be only one droplet since it is all so perfectly parabolic and perfectly spaced. would love any insight anybody has! im really curious!

Very strange! I'm confused.
