The first image looks like you set the sun's position below horizon.
When you do that, your renders come out with "purple light" for unknown reasons.

Weird, lol, check your geometry, no big objects accidently scaled up to block the normal light? Are the sun and sun target in positions that would make it daytime?

Still, that's too early !

The trivial reason that I know of is the model used. It doesn't allow the sun to be below the horizon (ground). If you need that time of the day, either get a suiting environment map, or model the Earth globe and sun and atmosphere. Heh :)

Er, noon summer time is about as far away from the horizon as you can get :lol:

Perhaps a crazy white-point setting? Checked the light layers? If it persists, pack the scene (Indigo > File > Save as > .pigs) and post it and we'll have a look

Check your global position and time zone. That could throw everything off.

Make sure your camera isn't inside a wall.
