I came across these amazing cloud formations over the Torquay Surf Beach, looking towards Rocky Point, which is in Victoria, Australia. Torquay faces Bass Strait, 21 km. south of Geelong and is the gateway to the Great Ocean Road. The town once had 145 bathing boxes on the main beach. In 1946 the Torquay Surf Life Saving Club was formed, opening their current clubrooms in 1971 after the previous one burnt down. Today it is the oldest and largest club in Victoria.
