It’s so cold that the sea on the coast of Nantucket, an island on the eastern coast of the U.S., has turned into slush! Jonathan Nimerfroh, a photographer and surfer who’s “obsessed” with the ocean, snapped these beautiful shots of slushy waves rolling in to the near-frozen beach.

According to Nimerfroh, the high temperature that day had been only 19F, or -7C. It was cold enough for ice to form near the shore, but not cold enough to form solid pieces of ice, which is why the waves had to travel through a layer of slush to reach the shore. It may look like an appetizing slurpee, but I don’t suggest trying it unless you like salt, pee and plankton flavor.

Nimerfroh is an avid ocean and surfing photographer who has plenty of other beautiful photos of the sea, so check out his Instagram and website! Shop the complete collection of Nantucket “Slurpee Wave” photos at www.jdnphotography.com.
