May I make a bracha on a rainbow formed by a waterfall?


No, a rainbow formed by a waterfall is like a rainbow formed by a glass prism.

One cannot make a beracha unless the rainbow is formed by rain, as the rainbow at the time of Noach.

A rainbow during a storm recalls the covenant, and this is what the beracha was enacted on.

Best wishes.
