Sunrise this morning. A surprise visitor.

The first photo is a sunrise image on a perfect day with Mount Diablo in the background. A flash of something white to my left distracted me and I discovered the Sea Princess had snuck in overnight. Perfect day for our visitors, who will be leaving on the evening tide. Last photograph shows the ship an hour or so later.

“Mother Motherland” (Ukrainian: Батьківщина-Мати), an enormous and impressive statue in Kiev (Kyiv), Ukraine.
For more information check Wikipedia. But just checking out the size of the humans at the bottom of the statue should give you some idea of the size.
