Analemma of the Sun

My fourth Solar analemma photo was taken between 2018-09-24 and 2019-09-15 at local noon (11:44 CET) in Budapest. Standing on Margaret Bridge and looking to South you can enjoy the most breathtaking panorama of the capital city of Hungary: the building of Hungarian Parliament, the Chain Bridge, the Castle of Buda and the riverbank of Danube -- no wonder this area has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1987.

Unfortunately I had some data loss of my camera's memory card so two dots are missing from the topmost of the "8" curve.

I took the foreground photo on 13rd of December, 2018. Initially I planned capturing a simple "Solar dot" and I was quite angry due to the clouds but quickly realized a cloudy foreground scene might be a cool idea.
