Watch Towers—(This photograph was licensed for use in a museum exhibit.)

The Czech Republic countryside

The fields of yellow with streaks of green surrounding the watch towers are sunflowers, blurred as the photographer’s bus sped past at seventy miles per hour. Sunflowers, raised to produce cooking oil, are a major crop covering almost three million areas of farmland in the Czech Republic.

And what about the watch towers? One can only speculate. Perhaps they are simply a relic from the days of farm collectives under Communism.
