I don't recall ever seeing a picture of this. The only Arizona picture that sticks in my mind is the one of it listing hard to port and burning.
The explosion picture that I do remember, that you just brought to mind, is the one of the USS Shaw exploding. The explosion was massive and the picture is caught at the height of the explosion with a palm frond framing the explosion from the top. An incredible picture.
Let's see if I can get it attached here....
Edit: Ok, it worked (if it is a little big). I don't have the original photographer but this picture is available electronically through the National Archives.
