Photospots.co.uk Maps (OS & Google)

"A website for amateur photographers to share their favourite photography locations."

Photospots.co.uk Google Map
Very clean site with direction of the sun and location of the photograph clearly show for each individual shot.

UK photograph locations have the additional maps from Ordnance Survey Openspace

Photospots.co.uk OS Map
Switching from Google Maps to Ordnance Survey is extremely well implemented no page refreshing required making this very user friendly and usable.

Map and Photographs viewable

Well done to Andrew Rickmann http://twitter.com/photospots/

A similar and much more established photographic by map location project http://www.geograph.org.uk/ is hugely popular. [1,560,388 images]
"The Geograph British Isles project aims to collect geographically representative photographs and information for every square kilometre of Great Britain and Ireland"

Access to these images can be made by the Geography API.

Here under educational licence is a slippy map version
