Extreme gardening, originally uploaded by julesberry2001.

On the face of it not a very striking photo, but forget Extreme Climate, or Extreme Ironing, Extreme Gardening rules in Japan. Balanced on a ladder you remove about a third of the needles from every sprout of pine needles over the whole tree. Repeat for each pine tree in huge garden. Nice cup of green tea when you're done, or a hospital trip if you reach the tipping point first. (Garden of Nijo Castle, Kyoto)

Striking? Maybe not.
