...the cold wind was sharp as I stood here, but the cold coming through my boots in the river was creeping in slowly at first then my feet started to lose feeling as I waited for the light to get through the clouds.

Nice shot!
Bit of a longer exposure to enhance the water movement to that milky flow might have been a better choice???
Just my opinion

I think its a great shot, who needs milky water, I have never seen water looking milky on any of my hikes.

So is this what you were up to yesterday? The light looks wonderful and the snow covered hills magnificent. Well worth your almost frost bitten toes!
I like the burn the way it is.

I don't do silky milky, the rivers and burns of Scotland run with clear water, very cold most of the time too.

I agree, sometimes think that milky is overused, Nice to see "proper" water Grin

Great landscape you have up there this time of year and a great capture to show it off.

They say we might get some snow down here tomorrow but its very sunny at the moment.

Brave man standing in what looks a fairly fast flowing torrent, esp. given the cold: a fine shot, Dougie, as ever from you as well composed.
I too much prefer the waters not to have a milky appearance, except perhaps in waterfalls where they form the main subject and filling the frame.

Great shot. I particularly like being able to see the rust coloured rocks through the cold clear water in the foreground. The direction of the water leads the eye to the mountain beyond.

Amazing definition in the foreground, Dougie. Two areas in the light separated by the river banks - impeccable composition.
My feet get cold even when the ambient temperature is in the upper teens Celsius: I can only admire your stoicism!

This has real depth to it Dougie, helped by the contrast in lighting and the shaded area of banking across the middle, which provides a nice break between the foreground and the distant hills.

The clear water is what makes this work for me, Dougie. To see the detail under the surface of the water, instead of a milky blanket.
You feel the coldness around your poor feet by seeing the coldness in the water, something you don't get the feeling of with milky.
A very dramatic divide between the fg brown and the distant winter white.

Clear, cold water coming from a cold background, nice timing on the water, it is so clear, I have the feeling I could sip it from the screen! It sure would ease my homesickness! Smile
