Experiment with terrain-in-terrain and each doubly stacked. The terrains are from the High Resolution Terrains 2 set, the materials used from the same set and the High Resolution Terrain 1 set, the sky from the HDRI Enhanced Skies set (everything available at Daz 3D). The sun is in the east, early morning well before mid morning.
In this version, the clouds look more natural.
How much does the scene file weigh?

Thank you. The clouds are a Bryce sky, rendered as the 6 faces of a cube several times with different light settings but without visible sun. Combined and transformed to spherical panoramas and then merged to an HDRI. This HDRI is blended to 50% with the same sky but offset by 40 degrees. With quality 32, saturation 100 and HDRI Effect 75 it gives the ambient light with a cool colour. Saved file size is 51 MB, loading needs 210 MB if memory and once loaded 142 MB.
