A stark, imposing line of stairs ascends dramatically at Cape Schanck, part of the picturesque Mornington Peninsula. The stairs, weathered by time and elements, cut a clear path upwards, inviting the viewer to imagine the climb. In the distance, the iconic lighthouse stands sentinel, its white facade contrasting against the brooding, moody clouds that fill the sky. The scene is a study in contrasts – the man-made structures against the wild beauty of nature, the starkness of the stairs against the softness of the clouds.
