I haven't tried, but I would be astonished if the editorial team could not handle emails in English.
    They definitely are, and subscribing from abroad is extremely easy. I love that magazine. Not only because it's a chance to improve my Swedish. :-)

    Large Format Nature Photography By Jack W. Dykinga

    Light and the Art of Landscape Photography By Joe Cornish

    Tom Mackie's Landscape Photography Secrets By Tom Mackie

    Landscape Within By David Ward

    Lee Frost's Panoramic Photography By Lee Frost

    Photographing the Landscape: The Art of Seeing By John Fielder

    Landscape Books:

    America Wide: In God We Trust By Ken Duncan (one of Australia's top landscape photographers)

    Desert: The Mojave and Death Valley By Jack W. Dykinga (whose images saved a desert landscape in the US and Mexico, creating a National Park in the process)

    Jack Dykinga's Arizona By Jack W. Dykinga

    The Great Southland By Ken Duncan

    Links to these books:

    Sorry, I don't have anything listed for masters such as David Muench, Tom Till, Tom Mangelsen, Christopher Burkett (who hand prints everything himself on Ilfochrome), Carr Clifton, John Shaw, Andris Apse, the late Peter Dombrovskis (who saved a river in Tasmania from destruction by his photographs), and of course, William Neil. Links: http://www.visionlandscapes.com/Resources.aspx

    All you listings above are fine masters of the landscape. But all are a very narrow focus of the gene. And if this is your definition of "real" color landscape photography, fine. That is your opinion.
    I would just suggest to others they look at a wider view of the world around us. The lanscape is more than what Ansel Adams taught at his workshops as "scenery quality." I love all landscape work. My favorite of the group listed above is Christopher Burkett.
    Here is a link to his website:

    River of Colour by Raghubir Singh. It's my favorite because it's the best retrospective compilation of the greatest composer of photographic color imagery, and it has landscapes in it so it should count for purposes of this discussion. My paperback copy, which I found in a Borders cutout bin for $8.00 is my most cherished photo book.

    Well I guess this is in the grey zone, but for me the greatest color landscape (topography) book is:

    American Prospects byJoel Sternfeld.

    I don't think anybody has mentioned him yet.

    Another vote for Jack Dykinga's "Large Format Nature Photography". My hands down favorite. (we may be in the minority, roteague).

    One book I like is Intimations of Paradise by Christopher Burkett. More intimate view of the landscape.

    That one is great. I have a personally signed copy I got from Christopher a couple of years ago.

    All of the members of Robert's list are on mine, but I tend to have two categories of landscape photography. Robert's list is in my saturated category. Then I have my subdued category that right now is only occupied by Freeman Patterson. www.freemanpatterson.com. I've seen others' websites (can't remember their names right now.
