It was right around noon, worse time to take pics but it was the only time I had available that day and I was anxious to start using my new/used E-3. I'm not even close to learning everything about it but for what I wanted to do it was in my head. :-)

So the ships knew that when you were coming aboard, they were not going to be Haze Gray and Underway...

Oh, they had PLENTY of HGAU time! Trust me. I helped commission the AW Radford so I had a LOT of underway time on her.

What I was getting at, was whether early morning or late afternoon would be better lighting.

Definitely morning in that position. When it's open to the public I'm going to go back in the morning hours and take a few more shots.
