There is a nordic nature magazine, Camera Natura, which regularly showcases the work of the usual suspects. It's a good way of getting an overview of the current nature scene here. It's in Swedish, but the emphasis is on pictures, not words, so it would be worth a non-speaker browsing though. www.cameranatura.se. 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. :-)
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.

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: http://www.christopherburkett.com/pages/home.html
Thought it would be interesting to ask others for their favourite colour landscape photography books, along with a weblink and short explanation of why they are your faves.
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.
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.
