Incredible images of near-frozen barrels in an eerie oil-slick smooth setting have been captured by a local man on Nantucket Island, off the coast of mainland USA between New York and Boston.
The region has been experiencing an unusual amount of cold weather of late, with temperatures being 10 degrees colder than average or more, which has caused the ocean to turn into a soup of pulverized ice slush. which has also deadend any surface disturbance on the water, allowing for these mesmerising images by photographer Jonathan Nimerfroh.
“I was totally tripping when I pulled up to the beach and saw this” – Jonathan Nimerfroh
Jonathan, who confesses he is ‘obsessed’ with the ocean, told Stay Wild Magazine, “Just been super cold here. The harbor to the main land is frozen solid. No boats running.But yea, the day after I took these it actually froze up the shoreline for 200 yards out. Solid ice. I was totally tripping when I pulled up to the beach and saw this.”
