This winter has been rough, particularly for our friends in New England. Wouldn't it be great if it just ended already?

But there is one nice thing that has come out of the freezing temperatures: slush waves.

Nantucket-based photographer Jonathan Nimerfroh captured some amazing photos of the waves while walking along the beach. Because the temperatures have been so frigid this year in New England, part of the ocean was starting to freeze, giving it this slushy, Slurpee-like look to it that makes the waves look like metallic sand dunes. February 2015 is the coldest month on record in New England, according to CBS Boston.

This is how Nimerfroh described the waves to USA Today's For the Win blog:

"When I pulled up to the beach I could see the horizon just looked strange," he wrote. "When I got to the top of the dunes I see that about 300 yards out from the shoreline, the ocean was starting to freeze. The high temp that day was around 19 degrees. The wind was howling from south west 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."

Now if only these slush waves actually tasted like cherry or Coca-Cola, that would truly be a dream come true. There's no telling when we'll stop experiencing harsh weather conditions this year, but at least we've got something nice to look at.
