Landscape photography is the ultimate test of the photographer.

I know it can be the most frustrating at times, maybe it's all those early starts.

There was a 645D photographer whose work was published somewhere notable last year or the year before... somewhere in there he noted to his interviewer that landscape photography is a pursuit that teaches you humility. You have no control over the weather, the light, the atmosphere... only where you are, when you are. The rest is out of your hands, and you have to make due with what comes your way.

I do like that the author of the thread's article mentions the waiting game involved. :-)

I think landscape photography is 80% just being at the right place at the right time. One can have a higher success rate with very careful planning and research of locations and weather - a lot of effort goes in here. Then, you just need a good travel budget and a decent camera with some filters and a tripod - it's more about timing than gear.
