How do you achieve this effect?

I'm posting one photo as an example but if you look through the rest of this photographer's photostream, you'll see that almost all his photos have the same effect - ie they almost look like paintings straight out of the Romantic era. I've always adored this look but I have absolutely no idea to achieve it. I've read about the Orton effect but that alone doesn't get me anywhere close to the end result I desire.

If anyone has any info on how to make your landscape photos look like this I'd greatly appreciate it!
