Hello,

I tried to color correct this in Lab mode with subtle adjustments to the a and b curves.

sharpened the luminosity channel and added a bit of contrast by pulling the blacks til no shadow detail was lost.

While I don't think my corrections are very 'correct', I highly recommend Dan Margulis' lessons on using the Lab channel for color correction, especially on such landscape pictures.

Another challenge I didn't adress here is the blue cast on the mountains behind. It is possible to correct those separately as well, but requires some time.

I was stuck with the blue ambient also, or time I took to correct it. My thoughts given more time was maybe, select the area and desat the blues on the mountains and maybe paint in overlay?

hmm thoughts on that and maybe burn back some details, I still think a tough way to go about it.
