Sadhus at ritual bathe,<br />
Kumbh Mela, Haridwar, India<br />
This moment is the highlight for pilgrims to watch the ritualistic plunge of the sadhus into the  Ganges. Haridwar is at the gates of the Ganges, where it comes plunging out of the Himalayas.  The water is icy but I think the sadhus are so high on hash that they don't care.  It is a purifying to enter the waters of the Ganga.
