Did you post these earlier?
These images look familiar somehow.

sheet web
Yes, looks like that may be it. I noticed however that the webs were not always orb weaver type. Sometimes they were more sheets- lying perpendicular to the orb weaver's.

But this looks like it might be it- or at least a very good starting point. Very close geographical area, so I think this one has been solved.

Thanks!

Looks like an orb web
How about Metellina
