Frozen Waves Of The Atlantic Ocean
An incredible phenomenon brought by cold winter
The cold winter of Massachusetts produced an incredible phenomenon 100 miles southeast of Boston on the of Nantucket recently: frozen waves were capturd by photographer Jonathan Nimerfroh.
That day the horizon at the sea looked quite strange, and when Jonathan got to the top of the dunes, he saw that about 300 yards out from the shoreline the ocean was starting to freeze. Waves were turning to slush, so Nimerfroh started taking photos of them and his images went viral last week.
The high temperature of the day was 19°F and the wind was blowing from the southwest. “Since the surface of the sea was frozen slush, the wind did not change the shape,” Jonathan said to GrindTV. “They were perfect dreamy slush waves. What an experience to be absolutely freezing on the beach watching these roll in while I mind-surfed them. I wonder if a shaper can make me a special-designed slurfboard?”
The next day, Nimerfroh went back and saw tat the same 300-yard stretch out into the ocean was frozen on the surface. It was 10 inches thick. According to local fishermen, such phenomenon had never been seen before in Massachusetts.
