Middle Earth has already released the likes of Martin Freeman, Sir Ian McKellen, and Orlando Bloom back into the real world, and now, finally, even director Peter Jackson is saying goodbye to the The Hobbit sets. Filming for the final Hobbit film concluded on Friday, assuming, of course, that Jackson does not decide to split the book up further into six or twelve movies, at which point it will officially have more installments than Sherlock. Regardless, it was a melancholy day for Jackson and his crew as they wrapped up shooting, and Jackson shared photos of his final hours on the franchise that has been part of his life for 15 years on his Facebook page.

Below you can see Jackson with Graham McTavish, dressed as the dwarf Dwalin, after the actor’s last shots as the character.  Plus, Jackson posted a photo of the tent where he “spent more time in the last two and a half years than anywhere else” with script supervisor Victoria, editor Jabez, assistant Seb, and producer Caro. The last two photographs feature a closeup shot of Thorin and the last shot of the day respectively. The director posted the final photograph as filming concluded, summarizing the moment as “Smiles and happiness… And sadness. Yikes, very sad.”
