Review: State quarters - Oregon


Just after I get finished making note of how nature scenes seem to fail on the state quarters, Oregon has to come along and prove me wrong with this, the representation of Crater Lake on their quarter. It's not perfect, but it's a good depiction of one of the coolest natural water formations in the United States.

I have to admit, I like it. I don't know exactly why it works for me, but it does.

Overall rating - 3 - Good

Stay tuned for Kansas.

I think this one works because so much of it is nothing. The trees and mountains show where the water is, but the water itself is just flat nothingness. Imagine how terrible it could be if they'd tried to stamp tiny "wavelets" all over it to show where the water is.
