The mesmerizing ballet of container ships moving around a shipping dock

What's great about this time lapse that shows a container ship moving around a dock is that it's not doing anything special and yet, the carefully orchestrated ballet of dropping off shipping containers is almost hypnotizing to watch. You get to follow the ship from dock to dock and see other boats move around it too.


Sometimes, monotony can look pretty cool. This video is an old one but a good one of the MS Renata cruising around the Port of Rotterdam in the Netherlands.
