The Treasure Coast and Beyond: Chastain Beach

Where is Chastain Beach?

Chastain Beach is a local favorite.  Positioned in-between the House of Refuge and Bathtub Reef Beach, most people probably don’t even know it exists!  For Driving instructions, the address is listed below and you can click on it to be directed to Google Maps.

The adventure continues…

Sunrise at Chastain Beach was at 6:58 a.m. on August 27, 2017.  I made sure to be there by 6:15 and I am extremely grateful that I did.  It has come to my realization that the time before the sun rises can actually be much more beautiful than the actual sunrise.  Today was the perfect example.  As you look through my latest photos, you can actually see the difference!

Before the sun rose, the sky was lit with so many beautiful colors, ranging from purple to orange.  The tide was low and so I was also gifted with some mossy green covering many of the rocks closest to the ocean.  With a normal phone camera, the images would not have turned out anywhere close to what I was able to capture on my Nikon.  Using my tripod and some long exposure I was able to absorb all the colorful light, which could barely be seen with the naked eye.  I knew I was going to get some good shots but I did not realize how good until I got home and uploaded them to my computer.  I must say that I have a couple of these photos that I know will soon be hanging on my wall!

I’m not sure how many people who read this blog have a boat, but I am looking for a volunteer.  I want to try using one of the images with the bottle, along with a little Photoshop, to make it seem as if a real boat is contained within…  I know, it seems a little confusing, but if you have seen the image that I created of the “Tradition Storybook”, you will know that I can probably do it.  If you have a boat and want to volunteer to let me take some photos of it (with you in it, if you want), contact me and we can make some arrangements.  If it turns out successfully, I will also give the volunteer a high-resolution image and a print release form so that you can have it printed to hang up in your own home!


Before leaving, remember to check out my Adventure Gear Store (Click here to check out my store).  These are items that I have bought or would like to buy at some point in the future.  If you know of any other useful items that I don’t have listed, please comment and let me know so that I can check them out!  Thank you for joining me as I explore the Treasure Coast and Beyond!
