[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This part of lake view is the centre of attraction at Allen Forest where you see hundreds of deer grazing in open savannah type land without fear of any predator. To me, it looked like something what I had seen at Corbett National Park close to Ramganga river !

The exuberant hub of North’s India’s industries and cultural extravaganzas, Kanpur city is the recipient of several accolades. Aficionados of Kanpur not only heap praises upon the city’s historical eminence and tourist attractions, but also its diverse natural heritage manifested in the Allen Forest Zoo.

Allen Forest Zoo is strategically placed a mere two kilometers away from the city’s epicenter. The zoo is an oasis of idyllic green and paints a pretty picture of the saffron beams playing on the green groves.

A visit to Kanpur mandates a stopover at the Allen Forest Zoo that remains open throughout the week except Mondays and flaunt India’s diverse and rich natural heritage.

Hi Subhash,this is a great beauty,it seem paint,wonderfull shot ,excellent atmosphere,thanks a lot for share and for the note too,have a nice day,Luciano

It is difficult to imagine a zoo like that almost within the city of Kanpur, Subhash.
Still, it looks pristine and a peaceful haven for those numerous wild beasts I see within the picture.
This is a good overview of the zoo from a suitable vantage point.
Well done and TFS.

Hi Subhash, I think I would love to go to your country! This is a beautiful landscape, and with the deers going on peacefully, it is amazing. I like the pov you picked, with the wavy path going into the scenery and the light getting dimmer and dimmer. It is a real beautiful landscape. Thank you!
