I have found that, if you are in the position you really want and can see flare in the viewfinder, there is a little trick (er, call it a technique) you can try. While looking through the viewfinder at the flare, extend a hand (or a hat or a card or ... ) up above the lens then gradually move it forward until -- with luck -- the flare disappears as the lens gets shaded. Move it too far forward and it'll show in the viewfinder. If there's still flare at that point, try changing its elevation above the lens and move it back and forth again. If you still can't get rid of the flare, then you just can't.
