Director Peter Jackson has wrapped production on his "The Hobbit" trilogy and fans were lucky enough to follow his last day on set (Friday, July 26) through a series of photos he posted on  Facebook.

Jackson took selfies with some of the cast, including Aidan Turner and Dean O'Gorman, and also snapped a picture of the last two shots of the movie, one of which is a closeup of Richard Armitage as Thorin Oakenshield. He even shared a picture of the behind-the-camera crew.

As his final day on the movie came to a close, Jackson posted one more photo after returning home to find an impromptu party in his house. "A 20 hour day ... 15 years of Tolkien ... 771 days of shooting," he writes, "And we arrive home exhausted, to a house full of teenagers! It's going to be a long night!"

The second installment in the trilogy, "The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug," will be in theaters December 13. Check out Jackson's pictures below:
