Heading over to Moab area in early January. I've read that the best time of year to photograph Delicate Arch is middle of winter, which is part of the reason for the timing. I also just looked at a moon calendar, and full moon is 1/9, so I adjusted my dates accordingly. So, questions:
- Best time of day to photograph the arch. Morning or evening (sunrise/set)?
- Best place (hike in, or long lens from far-away viewpoint)? I'm inclined toward the hike, as my daughter doesn't have a long lens.
- Other good moonrise/set opportunities in the area. Mesa arch? Corona arch? Others? (Also best time to catch it.)
Thanks in advance!
