the frozen sea

We felt a bout of cabin fever setting in over the weekend so we headed out on a mini road trip around the area to take in the polar vortex sights.  A dusting of snow was coating the already frozen Delaware Bay when we approached.

Frozen

It was unbelievable to see in person and may be hard to tell in these photos that the water is not cresting but is merely frozen in that position that we are so used to seeing.  We couldn’t hear the presumable sound of the surf crashing.

In fact, it was eerily quiet. And gray but in the most beautiful way.

Frozen Cape May

With the temperatures reaching above freezing yesterday and the sun peeking out, we actually ventured onto the beach.  The water was crashing in this location but right next to huge snow mounds.  What a crazy sight.  There is nothing like playing in the sand and snow at the same time.  Can you tell where the snow ends and the water begins?

  1. These are some of your most beautiful photos yet, which is really saying something because all your work is gorgeous. What kind of picture frame would you recommend for that vertical shot with the fence post?
