Re: Could it be a rogue water droplet?

but remember, The droplet itself is smaller and weights less than the water in mass. The waterfall is traveling downward at all times, with one droplet traveling up and then down. Even the water pressure created by the waterfall, would effect the a single droplet. I think the picture captured the moment. A faster shutter speed would have missed it.

This is a good thread on how shutter speed and aperture can actually change the perception of a pic. A creamy waterfall looks much better than freezing the action. Propellers look  better moving than frozen. Sometimes you capture something special, but not expecting the results, the OP did just that.

Its good conservation anyway, just my take.
