The top image has flare from the sun in the upper left side of the frame.

Both images are overexposed. The cyan sky color is typical of color twisting due to pulling the highlights down.

I suggest you:

remove any lens filters

acquire a lens hood

think of the camera's meter as an estimate or a guide; from this starting point adjust the exposure using your experience and knowledge; you are smarter than the meter/auto exposure ssystem

automatically bracket exposures so you can gain more experience

make sure  sure you  the exposure compensation dial  is initially set to zero
