Well, this has got to be the sector light to end all sector lights, with two red, two green, and two white sectors.  From the Norsk Fyrliste it appears likely that it operates as one of a range pair in conjunction with another light situated somewhere in the range of wooded hills seen in these images.  However I have been unable to identify the second light in any of the images I took that day.  The second shot shows a distant image of the light with Queen Victoria in the right of shot lending some sense of scale to proceedings.
