Photographer Jonathan Nimerfroh spotted ocean waves frozen over with slush off the Nantucket coast amid below-average temperatures throughout the region. The freezing water created an unusual effect on the wave shape.

Nimerfroh says he knew there would be waves of some sort, but thought that since the wind was blowing out, it would be “a total washing machine.” Instead, he found perfect sets rolling in with waves 2-3 feet high (those photographed below, he said, were probably more like one-footers).



“Since it was so frozen, the waves were like these glassy Slurpee barrels. ... The whole shoreline, from the sand to 300 yards out in the ocean, was a big Slurpee mess, and as the set got closer to shore, there was enough force in the swell to make waves,” Nimerfroh said. “You could have surfed them if it wasn’t slushy.”
