Beautiful day after the temperature rollercoaster

Today was the first day that I felt fit enough to go for a photo walk, after having gotten ill last week. After long stretches of stable and warm weather I forget, that I need to put on warmer clothes and shoes when it gets colder again. This keeps happening to me again and again. ...
