One Nantucket photographer has captured a one of a kind winter sight, nearly frozen tidal waves.
This winter has been harsh in many areas. We’ve seen record-breaking snowfall, blizzards and other winter weather extremes, but these pictures show something only seen by a few.
The photographer, Jonathan Nimerfroh was on a casual walk on the island of Nantucket when he noticed the unusual tidal waves. The water was so full of ice and in a nearly frozen state, creating a breathtaking image.
Nimerfroh shared his photos with CBS Boston, WBZ-TV chief meteorologist, Eric Fisher.
Fisher found the pictures interesting and shared what he thought the waves looked like to him.
“It looks like a big Slurpee rolling ashore,” Fisher said.
