Often the best time to shoot the full moon is the night before.

On the eve, the Moon rises a little before the sun goes down so there’s a time when all the late afternoon light is at its best and the moon is already above the horizon.

Knowing where the moon is going to rise is handy for making a good composition.

Canon 5D. Lens EF28-300mm f3.5-5.6L IS USM. Shot at f25 1/6 sec, ISO 200

    Wonderful photo – where was this taken?

    Hi Damon. I am pleased you have enjoyed the photo. It was taken about 15-20 kilometres north of Parachilna in the Flinders Ranges.
    I think the range in the background is part of the ABC range.
