It is hard to say but, by the drooping tips, its might be Cedrus deodara, possibly "Feeling Blue"

Definitely go for C. deodara.
Closer photo would help too

Doesnt look droopy enough to me for a Deodara and it looks too grey, maybe a close up would be better.

could be C. atlantica

I think you're right Nicky :-)

Branches and or tips go---

Atlantica= up
Libani= Level
Deodara= Down.

Thats how we remembered at college!

Looks like deodara to me too with hoar frost? As to the greyness, forms from Afghanistan are bluer/greyer anyway and they can be obtained in this country.
