Sunset on the Zambezi River

During a sundowner on the Zambezi River in Zimbabwe, I was fiddling with my camera settings to grab a memorable shot of the sunset. I noticed the cloud cover on the horizon and knew the opportunity was approaching. However, the sun's rays were relentless on my camera's focus, even with adjusted positions much of the surroundings were coming in blurred. The boat rocking back and forth on the river didn't help either. Eventually, this darkened shot resulted from accidentally shifting camera settings.
