There aren't too many secrets left now, with Frayling's book and the various location sites on the internet, I can post some more location site links if you like.

Finding the exact spot takes a bit of trial and error, sometimes several visits and its important to have some screen grabs or a photographic memory.

Very nice, I suppose just the right angle too is important.
Just in your estimation what percentage of sites are still useable for a western, how many are changed to the point where they cannot be used?

It good to get a picture laryered with the original in PaintShop Pro and adjust the transparency to see how closely they line up, the OTW flagstone picture with Sierra Baza in the background lines up nicely, others like the one taken from the top of the Cattle Corner water tank are a bit harder Smiley

I think that it's probably impossible to find a 360 degree location with no roads, power lines and plastic greenhouses around Albaricoques (Agua Caliente).  The GBU opening plateau is pretty unspoilt as are some of the abandoned railway lines around Guadix. The last bastion of usable locations in Almeria must be the Tabernas badlands.  In the North of Spain Maybe the GBU graveyard but I haven't been there.
