When you hear the words “big sky”, what comes to mind? Maybe the view from an airplane, or the sky at night as you kick back on the porch? When we hear the words “big sky” we think of open spaces with unobstructed views of the sky… those places that help a storyteller set the scene or convey a thought - whether it’s one of new beginnings, solitude or endless possibilities. The Palm Beaches have big sky angles in more places than you can imagine.
Ocean Inlet Park, Ocean Ridge
Of course, the biggest sky is at the edge of the water with unobstructed viewing to the east for spectacular sunrises. Day or night, the sky is huge at the edge of the ocean. With 47 miles of coastline, the right angle is here. Whether you want light or dark rocks for models to lean on, sandy shores to walk on, or beaches that allow furry friends, the sky’s the limit when it comes to coastal views in PBC.
Commons Park, Royal Palm Beach
Right in the middle of a dense residential neighborhood in Royal Palm Beach is Commons Park. It’s not widely known outside of the locals, but offers 162 acres of green space. It’s a large park with mature trees in the property line that effectively block out rooflines of the adjacent homes. The sky views are enormous with amazing sunset colors to the west. The second-floor event space is a great room for hair, makeup and wardrobe styling. The property has water views, natural areas, bungalow style architecture, a splash pad courtyard with pergolas and sports many angles for photo moments.
Grassy Waters in West Palm Beach
Grassy Waters offers a beautiful backdrop for lifestyle imagery as well as a high and dry area for birdwatchers and nature shows. Mounds of cypress trees provide a bronze backdrop in the fall, and with the additional texture of reeds and grasses, it’s a fine backdrop for fashion images. The elevated walkways do not have handrails, so the images really pop against the sky and reflect beautifully in the water. See these locations and more online at pbfilm.com.
