IMAGE: http://i46.tinypic.com/nld5yb.jpg
1/1000th
f3.5
200 ISO

This is a straight out of SD card (only converted to jpeg and resized).
No post processing has been done.
I shot this with 550d + Sigma 70-200 OS with a Hoya UV filter attached.
That's the only photo in a batch of 200 that has such abnormalities.

What could cause this?

That is really odd. I'm not sure what caused this but...have you formatted your card since? It could be a problem with the card. Do you have the photo before and after this shot?

Card read or write error most probably.
If you downloaded straight off the camera try using a card reader and vice versa; sometimes only happens with one form of downloading and not the other.
A format of the card in a card reader, followed by an in-camera format, should clear things up.
Just deleting all images from the card is not the same as a format and doesn't clear the filesystem.

If you mean the two twigs that appear to rise from nothing, are you sure the lower part wasn't simply cloaked in snow?

My first thought was also a corrupt card, but the edge isn't straight, there is a slight curve and lumpiness to the edge of the white where the twigs appear. It looks more like snow on the hedge to me.

The fact that another branch also crosses the "break", between the two anomalies, also suggests that section isn't simply a block moved by a corrupt card.

This is, of course, true.

However, it usually happens for a reason, and the OP is interested in what that reason may be. "Stuff happens" is not a reason for what happened.

If this image is the only one out of 200 I wouldn't worry about it. My suggestion is keep shooting and this happens again then worry about it. But I wouldn't panic so soon. Keep shooting op and keep us posted. Lets see if it happens again.

You took a picture during the moment they corrected time by adding a leap second. :D

It's branches and snow, in front and behind the focal plane. There are no abnormalities.

I'm not sure that's snow we're looking at. It looks more like the sky and trees. Just a glitch.

It looks fine to me as well. Was that close to the ground? It just looks like branches sticking out of the snow and I don't see anything weird about it.

look behind the larger branch on the right - an additional snow line - no glitch, just snow...makes for an interesting perspective though...

I think this isn't quite as simple as snow in front of and behind the focus plane (being pedantic, the focal plane is where the sensor is located). The effect is in two cloud shaped areas across the bottom of the image that like water marks would have on a badly dried print in film days.

Condensation on the filter or sensor? Shot through a window maybe with reflection of cloud?

What part of the bottom? It's optical compression. It looks like it's right "in front of the lens" but it's snow behind branches. There's one branch, blurred, in front of a bit of snow, then there's the snow, then it goes on and it's weird because it looks like it's cut off, but it's the same branch. Bottom right.
