Four Spot Orb Weaver Spider – Araneus Quadratus

Thanks to my Dad for spotting this beautiful spider this morning. Couldn’t get too close because it was on the roof. After some research I think this might be an Araneus Quadratus or four spot orb weaver. Anyone have any idea if I am right? I don’t really see the four spots on the back but maybe  its just the angle of the photo.
