The college welcomes submissions to be considered for the Hilltop Photo of the Week. Scanned or digital photos can be e-mailed to the Office of Communications at email@example.com, or photographic prints may be sent through campus mail to Box 549004. Please limit photo submissions to those that depict some aspect of the BSC experience, and be sure to identify what is taking place in the photo, along with location and people involved.

Climb and jump—The Birmingham-Southern Bouldering Club recently embarked on a rock climbing expedition at the local Moss Rock nature preserve, and then later in the day, headed to their next destination—a beautiful rock quarry in Leeds where they took this photo. The rock quarry resembles a giant dome containing exceptionally deep water and surrounded by woods. The quarry has no dirt at the bottom. Instead, the 100-foot-deep water is completely surrounded by rocks. This gives the quarry its "pure blue" look. It also is encircled by dramatic cliffs that visitors can climb to jump into the water. Here, the students had just experienced the rush of jumping off a 25-foot-high cliff, which was one of the lower points of the quarry since heights reached nearly 100 feet.
