I think this map is in error. Middle Earth is shifted much too far eastward.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v702/ ... riand2.jpg
Corsica and Sardinia would form a big mountain range running north to south on the right hand side of this map if you empty the water from the Western Med basin.
The Blue Mountains should be in the area of West Beleriand that was deformed/transformed into Middle Earth in the years after the War of Wrath.
Cirdan's stronghold in the area of Falas in West Beleriand should be in the same area as Lindon, the Blue Mountains and The Gray Havens many years after the destruction of Beleriand.
I put the Great Sea of Belegaer on the Atlantic side of Gibraltar (the area of Lindon and The Blue Mountains) and place the Sea of Helcar somewhere in the Mediterranean east of the Balearic Islands (possibly in the same area as the Ice Bay of Forochel or even further east).
There could be some confusion here about the identity of The Blue Mountains.
The Ered Luin which I put along the southeast coast of Spain beside Gibraltar and north of the Lune River, may or may not be the Blue Mountains.
These may not be the same Blue Mountains shown on the far east side of Beleriand before the War of Wrath.
Corsica and Sardinia (Cape of Forochel?) could form the other end of the Blue Mountains.
The original Blue Mountains, before the War of Wrath, may have formed one long chain running from southern Spain past the Balearics and on to Sardinia and Corsica.
You may still need to shift the Balearic Islands during the War of Wrath and break the line of the Blue Mountains to get the present day positions.
Alternatively, you could shift Africa and Gibraltar up against southern Spain.
I'm still not sure about this.
