Fingal's cave

This romantic style painting is not my usual style, but when it came up in the Google art project a few weeks ago, I was impressed. The painter is American Thomas Moran (1837-1926), best known for his American landscapes. His take on the Scottish scenery known as Fingal's cave (1884) is far better than any of his American work in my opinion. More about Moran in the linked Wikipedia article.
