Closeup pictures do help but the difference in color is a problem. A larger patch showing some of the irregularities you refer to would be helpful. An end grain shot too.
My first impression of the whole question based on what you said and the closeups, especially the second, is ash.
Some DNR and most universities offer some form of wood ID if you send them a small sample. They can examine it microscopically and confirm the exact species.
