From my experiences, 15th of each lunar month is the best for shooting moonrises for 2 simple reasons..

1. The moon is very bright, round and big!

2. Go to the beach for this one... today, the moon-rise will be very near sunset timing, so by the time the sun sets and the light is good (not too dark), the moon is in a perfect height above the horizon for ya to take that low moon (and its reflection). Incidently, the moon is bigger when near horizon.

However, the best moonrise i ever saw in Singapore was one year I was in Pulau Hantu for a BBQ, I was at the tip of the island where I saw the Sunset and moonrise simultaneously.. one at each side!

Yah... agreed... I was at Esplanade shooting today... and the moon did a dance of hide and seek among the fluffy clouds tonight... FANTASTIC... as a backdrop against the Fullerton... but too bad... don't have the right lens or camera to capture the moment.

It's common, when the clouds stands in your way, I once waited 3 hours for the moon to reach the correct height and the light to be perfect before I took a shot of moon-rise above the horizon.

However, it was taken with a compact APS camera few years back.. and I've yet to scan it.. so cannot show you.
