Wish I could tell you what you've found, but there are thousands of spiders and only an entomologist could give you an accurate identification. I can tell you that it is probably an orb weaver ((Araneus diadematus) and you may want to try an internet search under that name to find a photo of a similar spider.

Best wishes with your search!
