My friend took this picture yesterday and after uploading them to the comp. she noticed some sort of glowing blue haze. I'm sure it's something to do with the light and the lens but I'm clueless as to this subject.

Any explanations?

Are you being serious in you don't know what it is? Or are you playing a joke with us? I can say with 100% certainty that this is lens flare from taking a picture of the sun my friend. :yes:

A think it is caused by the sun.  Look from the sun to the ground and you can see a streak.

One common type of lens flare (this type!) puts a flare at the diagonally opposite location of the light source.  Put an imaginary cross at the centre of your image, then draw a line from where the Sun is, through that point and extend it the same distance in the other direction from the centre point - and that's where the flare is.

Definitely lens flare.

It is pretty much impossible to avoid flares of various types when shooting into the sun and it doesn't even have to be in frame..
