Re: Strange water formation in long exposure

Looking at some of the components in the photo (leaves, specifically), this seems to be a fairly small drop.  I'd say the apex of the arc is no more than 2 feet above the surface.  So 2=1/2(32.2)t^2 - t = about .35 seconds.  I see about 16 drops from the apex to the bottom, so something would be oscillating at nearly 50Hz.  That seems quite high for a natural phenomena.

But I have no better answer
