Default Cotton Candy Ridge

Although most of the natural forests were native birch and Caledonian Pines, there are still huge areas of cultivated pine for the pulp industry. When these are cut down some of the trees remain standing stark against the skyline.

The big cotton candy clouds were hanging above the ridge like smoke signals could have been the Wild West; instead it's in the Cairngorm Mountains.

I'm wishing there was more detail in the trees and rock as you have in the clouds....detail meaning shades, texture. Have you tried shooting it with varied fstops or white balances so you merge a few copies in PS?
