Gibraltar Pilots bring fresh perspective on port

Ship lovers will be thrilled to see new dramatic footage of vessels docking in Gibraltar.

Time lapse sequences posted by Gibraltar Pilots on Twitter show the view from the bridge as the cruise ship Thomson Celebration comes alongside at the Western Arm in the port of Gibraltar.

In another sequence, @PilotsGibraltar shows the view from the bridge as the Royal Princess docks at the Rock.

The Twitter feed is a nautical feast for the eyes, with rarely-seen views shot from the bridges of visiting cruise and merchant ships.

One unusual shot looks down from the conning tower of a nuclear submarine as it berths in the South Mole.

There are also views of cargo ships approaching the Rock from the Strait of Gibraltar...

...and a time lapse sequence of a bulk carrier docking in the port.
