ID quite large deciduous tree

I've noticed a few of these trees because their autumn leaves make them look delicate and almost to sparkle in the sunshine. I'm not sure if they start out with much denser foliage but when I have noticed them they stand out from the others because their leaves are sparse but seem evenly spread over the tree. Can anyone identify it for me please? I live in the Blue Mountains,

That's a big ask at this time of year. My guess would be a prunus, maybe a wild cherry like prunus serotina. they don't get fruit unless there is another nearby.

Hi Greg, thank you very much for that suggestion. I will look up prunus varieties to see if one looks like this. I am in the process of buying a property and there is a tree like this in the back garden
