A downside of not having an Anti-aliasing filter?

I was feeling a little chuffed over my landscaping efforts at the side of our house & took some progress photos today, but was surprised to see this rainbow striped effect on the sides of the timber stair stringers. The timber has been milled with grooves ('Rougher Headed' finish) which I think has created the effect along with the camera not having an anti-aliasing filter.

These two photos are small crops of the images.

And no effects on this K6038320-cr-s.jpg

Any further explanations & discussion welcome.

I fiddle with violins (when I'm not fiddling with a camera).
