One thing I'd like to mention is, given the location of the sun in the sky, I'm sure you realize it was not quite that dark. However, I wanted to capture the sun's rays nicely without over-exposing, so I played with the settings. Here's the relevant Exif for how I achieved the effect (by the way, I was just experimenting, I am not good enough to have planned this exactly):
