Hello, Walter, and welcome to EPZ.
You were shooting into the sun here, and your image is suffering from a lot of flare as a result.
Since you shot this at home, you have the time to get outside before the sun has come over the horizon, or even catch it behind a cloud, and you will then find that you experience less flare, if any, and won't have a white blob where the sun is either. What you will hopefully get, with clouds like this, is an attractive golden sky and clouds outlined with the sun's glow. Even shooting whilst the sun is behind that large tree would give you a much better image.
Here is a site tutorial on photogaphing sunsets, and many of the same things apply to a sunrise. Click on the blue word "here" to see it. I see that you used some negative exposure compensation and a low ISO, which is very wise, but the sun was still too strong for these to have been of any benefit.
I feel sure that this image doesn't do justice to the scene that you saw at the time.
When composing your shot, try to have one third land and two thirds sky on the vertical, and a silhouetted land area is perfectly acceptable. Don't position your sun, or rising sun, in the centre of your frame, offsetting it looks far better.
Although the tree is a nice feature on the horizon, the house tops and aerials are not, so look for something on the horizon that is of more interest next time.
