When I go hiking I noticed that sometimes the photos have a noticeable amount of haze, especially when photographing long distance mountains. I think this is a natural phenomenon due to air composition, but I was wondering whether I can reduce this effect somehow.
After reading some guides, I tried with polarizer filters, but it did not really improved much. In Lightroom I can "Dehaze" the photos, but this introduces an overall blue tonality that makes the overall composition unreal. How is it possible to take "cristal clear" shots of mountains? Is it a matter of time/weather conditions (like better when cloudy/more humid than a sunny day)?
