Never give in, you can plan as much as you like, have the patience of a saint but you also need to be persistent.
This all lasted about 10 mins giving me just enough time to get a few photos. At first I put the tripod up but it was just too windy , no where to shelter from this westerly wind. So I moved onto a bean bag placed on the car window and started to fire away. I set the camera to manual and decreased the exposure , at ISO 500 i managed to get 1 second at f/5.6
