Nantucket photographer has captured Eye catching, Enormous and Approximately Frozen Waves on his camera.
Jonathan Nimerfroh, a photographer, has explored himself looking at an ocean full of Slurpee. The Atlantic Ocean appeared in this manner due to the extreme cold temperature which made it freeze. Even though the lakes freeze every year, freezing of oceans is a rare incident.
This beautiful rare incident was captured by the photographer/surfer/ocean enthusiast by setting out. When the half frozen waves stirred and met the shore, they appeared as if it was made out of something thicker than water. According to Jonathan, “The wind was howling from the southwest which would typically make rough or choppy conditions, not so good for surfing. But since the surface of the sea was frozen slush, the wind did not change the shape. They were perfect dreamy slush waves.” This peculiar phenomenon is shown below by the images.
It was a peculiar, thick density.
“Slurpee Waves”, the series of his photos are eye-catching.
The combination of water and air temperature make it an unusual appearance.
The temperature of Nantucket was 19°F at the moment of capture.
The photographer talks about the day of capture in “Stay Wild Magazine”:”Just been super cold here. The harbor to the mainland is frozen solid… The day after I took these it actually froze up the shoreline for 200 yards out.”
Additionally to the sea-centric photography Jonathan is an avid surfer and he is “obsessed with the ocean.”
