Lightning dances on the horizon at dusk near Five Rivers Lookout outside of Wyndham in northern Australia. Intense tropical storms illuminate the evening sky at the start of the "wet"—the rainy season that lasts from about December to March. "When the wet arrives and you feel the wind coming at you," says photographer Randy Olson, "that's the best feeling in the world in these hot little towns."
