Re: Diffraction grating through leaves

I suggested this a few days ago and no-one commented so I'll try again with a picture of the effect diffraction can give. It is possible that the image shows a stream bouncing or even just a mist being lit appropriately.

I'm not talking about lens diffraction, but the effect of light passing through leaves or similar:

This is what diffraction grating looks like (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Diffraction_150_slits.jpg )

A thin stream of water bouncing off the rocks and passing through light as in the above could appear similar to what happened in the photo, and a secondary effect could explain the fainter phenomenon on the right hand side.
