Random Shots From Moneymoy

This time of the year I spend a lot of time at Moneymoy. It's a great location to keep an eye on the waterfront and catch the last light of the day. It's also a great place to grab a few shots of the sunset.
I was at Moneymoy this evening. It felt like fall. Summer is nearly over. Another 5 weeks and we will have our island back. I'm looking forward to it.

Not sure if this is legal. It's a fence a homeowner built to keep us unwashed off "his" beach at Moneymoy.
Dune restoration???? The closest dune is 5 miles from this location. Just another attempt to keep us unwashed away from the beach at Moneymoy. Someone please correct me if I'm wrong here.

I set up one of my trail cams in a different area of the island than I usually set my cams up in. A place entirely new to me. The second night my cam was there I got a big buck on film. He looks to be an 8-point, possibly a seven. It's hard to tell because his right side is starting to palmate. I believe I can see an 8th point forming. This is a nice buck by Nantucket standards. Note the curved brow tines. I will be documenting this big guy with my trail cams. It will be interesting to see him when he comes out of velvet. He still has about a month and a half of antler growth at an inch of growth per day.
