This unlikely photo shows a phenomenon called cross sea, and it’s basically the coolest thing I’ve ever seen. The thing is, as beautiful as it might look from above, you wouldn’t want to get caught in a wave system like this. It can be among the most dangerous ocean hazards.
This phenomenon may be dangerous (boats are meant to hit waves head on, not from all sides), but at the same time it’s also one of the most beautiful naturally occurring shapes. I could stare at that first photo for hours!
