    First time visitor here Steve – I am glad to have found your work. Looks like you had an incredible year for 2009 creatively.

    Some of my favorites;

    Lupine Island – the backlight on those buds is just magical. Great comp.

    Spring Snow storm – I love the message of perseverance that is communicated with that tree.

    Millpond – I am not familiar with Galen’s version – but this is quite nice.

    Abstract – as a rock abstract fan myself – I love the portrayal of these “mountains.”

  8. Ron Niebrugge Says:

    Fantastic work, thank you for sharing and motivating.

  27. kim sieren Says:

    My last name is the same as yours. I wish I could take photos like you. They are just beautiful! Kim-Hillsboro,Or.

  28. Steve Sieren Says:

    Hey Kim, I don’t much about the name just that it originated in Germany and first showed up Iowa, that’s where my grandparents are from. Are you guys from Iowa too? If your parents know anything about the name I would love to hear it. There aren’t many of us Sierens on the West Coast.

    Thanks so much for enjoying the photographs. Save the link or add it to your favorites and stop by again sometime Kim.
