The harvest season has arrived. I've been spending my time traveling the local farms and documenting the harvest of Michigan crops. Moosejaw Mountaineering creative manager Zakk Barozzini spent the day on The Backyard Bouquet Farms harvesting three different breeds of sunflowers by hand. The field looked much different than the fall cultivation that I photographed several months back.
