Sunset/Moonrise Photo spot

We plan on being in Moab in the fall during a time when there will be a full moon. What location would be best to shoot the full moon

Lots of good possibilities. I would focus on Arches, The moon obviously comes up in the east. Look for opportunities where you have a clear shot at arches or monuments where you can also see the eastern sky. Courthouse Wash would be a great option where you could literally shoot right from the road. Delicate Arch works very well for this. You might also be able to be creative on it in the Windows Section. All of these areas are easily accessible.

Do watch for the synchronicity of moonrise with sunset - it varies depending on where you are in the actual lunar cycle. That may impact your shot. What's the date you'll be there?

Have fun.
