POTD: Ominicity

POTD: OminicityOmnicity Maudlow, Montana 2014

Why use several words when you can make up a single new word like “omnicity” to mean the state of being ominous. Not only are the clouds a bit ominous, especially if you live in tornado country (which we don’t, although there is an occasional funnel here and there), but depending on how many old Westerns you’ve watched, that line of trees on the horizon might be mistaken for a tribe of Sioux warriors about to descend on you. (That last sentence is probably one of the worst sentences structurally that I’ve ever written and let stand. But as long as I’m making stuff up, I might as well invent some new grammar standards while I’m at it.)]]>

  1. Would the cloud have even more “omnicity” if you cropped in on the foreground? I’m thinking past that front row of scrub pine to just below the more distant line or even to just below the triangle of trees on the right. Love clouds like this….especially if there are no tornadoes!

    1. You might be right about it being more ominous if cropped, but that really wasn’t the original point of the photo. Rather it’s just what I came up with when I was trying to think of an interesting descriptive name and associated story.
