Bomb craters

There were many bomb craters on Betio after the battle. One photo I have seen shows a huge crater with unexploded 8-inch shells in the foreground. It is said that this was the site of an ammunition dump that received a hit and exploded. Can anyone tell me any reference numbers that would help me to locate a copy of this photo? I think it was an official photo of the USMC and probably could be found in the National Archives if I had the reference number.
