Top photos by Country in 2015

Mavora Stars

Following up on our announcement of the Top-25 overall photos on Flickr in 2015, we’re happy to present a collection of top geotagged photos by country for the same period. Photos are scored and ranked based on a variety of social and interactive factors, and we’ve normalized the data to include each photographer only once per region.

You can see the entire collection of country/territory galleries on our Flickr Data account, or browse the photos and country name links below.

It’s interesting to note how some of the top photos might meet your expectation of an image from the respective country (i.e. beautiful sunsets in Aruba) and how many other photos might surprise you. Enjoy!
