Peder Balke (1804-1887), Norwegian coastal scenes  
A rough and ready painter, but some of his paintings of Norway's amazing coastline are quite powerful in their way.

A weird mountain.

I think this is the same as the previous from another angle; described as Kielhomet in Stegen (Steigen?).

The Seven Sisters, or some of them at least; I have seen these from the coastal ferry, they are a truly wonderful sight.

A really nice series of images. A google search of his name turned up some other nice ones, as I'm sure you're aware, but also many interesting images by other artists. That seems to be a welcome new side-effect of the new Google Images.
