Even at his weakest (I'm looking at you Zombie Lake) I always come away from watching the film with a profound sense of place; a deep strong desire to experience these places first hand. (I wish)
It doesn't matter where these places are 'natural' or architectural he communicates a deep love. Even modernist architecture (which I feel is anti-place) he transforms into something greater.
An excellent example is my Favourite part in The Iron Rose; the beginning with the opening shots depicting the village and the banquet. I haven’t seen that film in years and still it sticks in my mind. He celebrates the ordinary and also elevates it to the extraordinary at the same time.
