Planning was essential, but luck played a key role in getting this shot of the full moon rising behind a beached shrimp boat. There are many different places you can obtain moonrise/moonset information but no one can tell you when this
will coincide with the sunset and a perfectly clear sky.

Actually, the blue in the middle of the photo is a thick haze, the moon wasn't able to break through this until it had already been up for 30 or 40 minutes. I was hoping to catch it as it rose directly over the horizon, although I am happy with the image as it is.
