Unlike human or animal subjects, landscapes usually stay in one place.  This is helpful because one often spends quite a bit of time waiting for the light and not having to worry about the subject getting bored and upset.  The link is to a book of that title by David Norton, one of the best landscape photography books.  He may come after Ansel Adams in time, but definitely at the same level of insight into the art of photography.
