Rolling sharply as she rides out a Pacific storm. Photographed from USS Essex (CV-9). The original photograph is dated 13 January 1945, but Morison, History of U.S. Naval Operations in World War II, Vol. 13, captions this view as having been taken during the Great Typhoon of 18 December 1944. Official U.S. Navy Photograph, now in the collections of the National Archives.
