Lens hood or hold your hand above the lens or on the side of the lens from which the sun is shining.

I use lens hood. If I put my hand, the wide angle like a 18mmm get it in the photo.

there is also a company that makes flags that you can mount on your camera lens, and some you hold with your other hand... then you can position them to block the suns rays... they are high enough and far enough away from your lens that you shouldn't get them in the picture even at 18mm..

I like the last shot. The dark silhouette to the balances the sun nicely. The texture at the bottom is great. I would crop a bit off the top - the brighter blue and a bit off the bottom and this would make a nice panoramic print. The lens flare doesn't bother me alot. You could ps it out.

I think it's unavoidable when shooting the sun itself; unless you point directly at the light source, the incoming light will hit the various lens elements in different places and not be lined up and lost in the image of the source itself. In this case, the off centersun is too nice. It really helps the picture. I am not sure if even the best coatings on lenses can prevent some flair - those with more experience may know better.

What lens are you using? This type of lens flare is more prevalent with multi-element zooms than with prime lenses. From tha exif data, it looks as if everything else is good. Shooting at wide apertures tends to exacerbate this problem, but at f/22, you should be fine.
