Spider identification-any ideas ?

Thought this spider looked a bit different, wondered what it was?

    It is difficult to tell from these photos. Are you able to post a clearer photo?

     

    Despite these pictures being too fuzzy to venture an educated guess, i'm leaning towards a Nuctenea umbratica (often called a walnut orb weaver).

     

    The females especially are able to overwinter successfully, meaning it's not uncommon to see adults at this time of year.

     

    But without a clearer photograph, i'm afraid this is akin to guesswork!
