Sorry for me the colors of the sun is a bit over the top, which is a shame because I think there is a better shot waiting to pop out.

Welcome to EPZ Wik.

This would look better large Im sure. As it is, shooting into the Sun when its above the horizon produces both lens flare, which you can see here; underexposure, and in accurate white balance. best to wait until the Sun is behind clouds, or just below the horizon.

I have uploaded a modification to show what it might look like under these conditions, scroll up this page, click the modifications tab, and view large.

welcome to EPZ, most comments have been already said, I think it leans a bit to one side (left) but otherwise is a very good picture and the way you framed it does justice to the landscape.
