Hello everyone! My name is Cody Lere and I'm a Rapid City native and landscape and severe weather photographer. Over the week I will be sharing my flavor of the Black Hills beauty and the summer storms that can sometimes overtake us. Here is an image of a dissipating supercell showing beauty after power, near Lower Spring Creek Road, NE of Hermosa. The only photoshopping was removing my shadow from the road.

Just some simple prairie grass. Yet I've always enjoyed running my hands through the tall seed heads on walks or hikes. Something soothing about it.
.......
Taken with a vintage Miranda 50mm f1.8. A great little legacy lens that doesn't get enough love in my opinion.

Milky Way as photographed from Canyon Lake Park, Rapid City.
This was such a difficult image to pull off mainly coz of all the light pollution around and also light rays from nearby lamp posts producing flares and whatnot in the image.

β€œBeauty,” an in-situ #mammoth skull at #TheMammothSite in #HotSpringsSD. Beauty and all of his compatriots (over 60 so far) fell into a #karst #sinkhole in the limestone below a slippery shale. All were wandering males with an average age of 25 who had to strike out on their own after likely being ousted from their herd as they matured. The sinkhole acted as a trap for up to around 700 years as it filled in with mammoths, predators like the short-faced bear, and other creatures. #paleontology #Pleistocene #discoverBlackHills #SouthDakoya

It's been awhile since I've had a Saturday where I woke up with no agenda. I took the dogs on a run, made a real breakfast and now I'm sipping some coffee out of my fav mug (made by the talented @jsnell4 ) while editing video from our honeymoon. I still have one million things on my to do list but it's nice to start refreshed and enjoy this oh so short time of year #fallyallπŸπŸ‚ .

As a side - Jessica and her mugs are amazing. I did a little shoot with her and her "herd" of buffalo mugs when I still lived in Casper, check it out with the link in my profile!

People are double-faced and double-tongued, but God has not changed. He has but one face and one tongue, one unrelenting love for His bride. Unlike us, God’s character never changes. His one face is righteousness. His one tongue is holiness. His one undying call to His people is love. We are fickle and fleeting, but our King has always been, and will always be the same, unchanged. β€’

Talking to my best friend (@abby_holliday_ ) yesterday was such an amazing blessing to me, to be able to process through this season of life I am in. I am so grateful for her counsel and wisdom and love. Thank you Jesus for the blessings you have given me right now, thank you for your grace, and for your image in us.

"Owanka Elevator"
A skeleton of a grain elevator, once a thriving business in a now abandoned town of Owanka, still holds its ground. It kinda comes back to life in the starry night.

"I can see for miles and miles." Red Shirt Table, one of the most breathtaking places in the Badlands to be at; felt like I came to a whole different world. Simply magical.

I used to hate how much I would look at the ground when I hiked, sure I was missing all of the views. But sometimes the forest floor is the prettiest part. Trust your look on life. Find beauty in everything you see. .

We went on a hunt for an old β€œghost” town. Hunt was the right word since we spent almost an hour looking for it, when it was literally right off the road. Gaaahhh! But, I got some awesome shots, so all is good. #spokane

"Happiness is watching Northern Lights with a loved one."
Good-morning everyone. Eden here, my second last day of this takeover.

Occasionally the mystical northern lights blesses us by making it south all the way to Black Hills. This was one of those few appearances where the moving light was clearly visible not just to the long exposing camera but to the naked eye as well.

Good-evening folks. Eden here, midway through this Insta takeover. A friend of mine once said to me that Black hills and South Dakota doesn’t have a nightlife. Well…I beg to differ. It gets insanely beautiful around here. Taken from the beautiful Yellow Mounds overlook area in the Badlands. I love how the park comes alive during a clear moonless night.

An Abandoned grain elevator at ghost town of Owanka, South Dakota. Just got a Sigma 50mm "Art" and took it our for a spin. This was taken with this lens by stitching 16 photos. This lens just blew my mind, It feels like I've upgraded from standard to high definition.

My kinda Oktoberfest.
With foliages reaching max color this time of the year, its quite easily the best month of the year for me. With windows rolled down and a cool breeze flying by, Zeppelin on the audio system, driving slowly through this highway taking it all in, ohhh what a great feeling.

If these walls could talk..
Good evening folks, I’m Eden here on my 2nd day of this takeover. There are few amazing ghost towns around Black Hills and Ardmore is one of them. It is just few miles south of Hot Springs and we can see some old abandoned buildings which looks so amazing against the starry night sky, well at least for me. When you are here, do respect the KEEP OUT signs.

"Empty Spaces"
A twisting turn at Custer State Park. I love doing long exposures to get that soothing blend of motion, one of my favorite thing to do with my camera. There's a sign somewhere in Custer State Park that reads, it is a place where one can remain unworried and get his sanity back again, so very true.

Being married to this man has not only been a great joy, but a great challenge. Not because he is challenging, but because I am imperfect and not at all the "picture-perfect" wife that I always thought I would be. Being married to this man is completely humbling. I am called to be his help-meet, to serve him and love him and let him lead me, but so often I find myself battling against meekness, struggling to be in the lead, arguing and fighting against his leadership and authority, and unwilling or begrudgingly serving him, with a heart that is not submissive or joyful in my role at all. But oh how incredible it is to see James point me to Jesus in these times. When I am not the bride or the wife that he deserves, he points me to Jesus and loves me and forgives me. He gently calls me back and serves me and shows me the love of our Savior. He is constantly a picture of my Jesus to me. He is constantly modeling, through his love for me, our Father's love for us. I am so grateful for a man who is a servant leader, who teaches me to be meek, who makes me want to be his helper, who encourages me and challenges me, and who models every day to me, the sacrificial love and leadership of our King.
