Strange iPhone Photo Error

This afternoon, we stopped beside the Thurmond-McDenoree Road outside of the Beckley West Virginia area to see a waterfall. I hopped out and took a snapshot with my iPhone. For just a second I wondered if the moving water would look different because of the curtain-like shutter characteristics of the iPhone's camera. But what came out was very different. Yes, that's a waterfall, but the memory map is all fragmented.

Now, to be honest, this is the very first glitch I've seen on my iPhone camera, and this is the phone that went into the swimming pool with me and occasionally ignores finger taps. I think the phone went catatonic at just the right instant and produced this. Still, it's interesting.

That has happened once to me, but there is a Flickr set full.

This happens to my wife and I sometimes. I wonder if Apple will fix it?
