I started at Cohoes Falls but with overcast skies, the images are nothing exciting. I then headed up to Vischer Ferry Nature Preserve, stopping at the Crescent power station looking over at the end of Flight Lock Road in Waterford. Here is one of the images.
The 24-70mm lens has a closeup setting that lets you focus closer at 70mm and get to a magnification of .7X. The image stabilization in this lens also is Canon's hybrid design which supposedly helps hand held closeup shooting. This Tree Lungwort is a handheld single file at f/11, 1/125th second and ISO 400.
