The Old Man and the River Ganges

An old is on his way back to shore, after immerse himself in the sacred Ganges. I also went into the river but only a few feet, and I can tell you it was freezing cold,

This is the Rishikesh part of the River Ganges, and it's not polluted at all – the further down river you get the more polluted it gets – I wouldn't have gone out in the if it were polluted.
But the Indian people are used to it, and doesn't seem to have any problems immersing them self into the water, no matter where on the river they are.

I cloned away a part of another person, who just managed to get in the frame, other than that it's a color and contrast adjust only photo.
