Eriophora ravilla
Apparently, this spider is polymorphic ( more than two phases of color/pattern ) Not sure if there is a phase that predominates. You can do general seaches ( e.g. orb weavers of Florida ) That's how I identified this one.

 
Tom,
what do you think of this one? Related? or Neoscona??

 
variation?
This appears to be a variant of the same species...otherwise, it could be a slightly overexposed image. They build webs up to a meter diameter. Nice work!
