Photographer Ragnar Th. Sigurðsson, captured the happy atmosphere prevailing in Reykjavík this afternoon, the day after the “First Day of Summer” a traditional holiday marking the end of the winter season according to the old Icelandic calendar. Happy fishermen and college students celebrating the end of exams, were among those he came across today.

Day-to-day life continues in Iceland apart from the directly affected areas of the volcanic eruption in south Iceland, businesses are open as usual and society at large functions normally. As before, there is plenty to see and do while in Reykjavík. The whale watching season has officially started, new exhibitions are opening and sightseeing tours are running as normal, including jeep tours to view the volcano.
