the weather in February in the south of the UK is - COLD! Yes, it does get a bit dreary sometimes, but, it is also one of the best times of the year for photography in my opinion. Fantastic low golden light, very clear, crisp air. It's nothing a some decent clothingand a wooly hat can;'t manage. Besides, you're from Canada so i expect it's nothing like as bad as it gets over there!
Personally, i actually love the winter, as i suffer in the heat a bit sometimes so look forward to the cooler temperatures.
Would be great id you did visit, i could show you Hengistbury Head (where is taken from, on the other side of the Harbour from Christchurch). Im sure you would love it.
thanks for looking and your kind comments as always
