It looks like an orb weaver of some kind. I might be in the genus Araneus. I would need a closer look to identify it further. The colors in the image are bit dark. You can try searching using the genus name to see if you can recognize it further.
These usually are not dangerous, preferring to run and hide if disturbed.
