It was pretty challenging trying to get a shot of a gray ship in a gray sea against a gray sky. I included Ballast Point in the shot so you wouldn't think this was a black-and-white photograph!

I was honored to talk briefly with Jan Shaw, widow of Admiral John Shaw. The late Admiral's ashes were on Nimitz and I was able to send her a print of this picture.
