Valley of the Santa Ysabel

Although in general my taste in paintings is more in impressionism and expressionism, there are romantic landscape painters I like very much as well. Best known examples are Constable and Turner, but Frederic Edwin Church (1826 - 1900) belongs to that group too. I came across this 1875 beauty in a piece about the Berkshire Museum, and it was love at first sight. More about Church in the linked Wikipedia article.
