A photographer documents nearly frozen waves in Massachusetts, calling them a ‘big Slurpee’

The record-setting winter of 2015 has left us with all kinds of remarkable images, most of them of snow and ice.

But a photographer on Nantucket found something most of us have never seen – nearly frozen waves.

Jonathan Nimerfroh was walking along a beach on the island recently when he saw these waves rolling in like slush.

The waves were semi-frozen because there was so much ice inside them. He took several pictures and shared them with meteorologists from around the world.

It does in fact look like a big Slurpee rolling ashore:
