    guess?
    Check your white balance setting. Make sure it agrees with the subject. Or just set it for AUTO

    did you do as Pac suggested and check your WB?

    Looks like its set to tungsten or something custom.

    White balance was set to fair weather.

    What is "fair weather"? Do you mean daylight?

    Yes, so leaving it on daylight WB when the light is getting more blue will do that to you. In the morning the kelvin temp of your lighting is lower (2000-4000) and around midday with bright sunlight you are around 5500-ish. As the day wears on, the light tends to trend toward the blue, 6000K+. Leaving your WB set for daylight will give you more blue in the late afternoon if the light is fading. Try AUTO if you are not sure what the light is and see if your late afternoon shots look less blue.

    If you have photo shop open your blue tint images in camera raw and click auto WB it will bring them very close to right,it should save any you have.

    also make sure you haven't made WB override to whichever WB you're using, or if you haven't you might want to try it.
