What The......Where Did That Come From by Clive

What The......Where Did That Come From by 

Camera Olympus E-30, Focal length 169.0mm,
Shutter speed 1/500s, f.6.3, ISO 200
A huge swell suddenly appeared in front of these men who were fishing at the end of the Point Lonsdale jetty on the Bellarine Peninsula near Geelong, Victoria Australia.
These swells can appear at any time here caused by strong currents and uneven seabed and a deep winding underwater valley that runs through the “Rip”. The “Rip” which is a narrow run of water about one kilometre wide, it is know by seafarers from around the world as one of the most notorious stretches of water in the world, it is not uncommon to witness swells up to 40 foot high in the area.
