Where Does Ferricyanide Accept Electrons?

Although I do not have a citation other than a plant biochemistry text
by T.W. Goodwin and E.I Mercer (1972), it is my understanding that
ferricyanide accepts e- near the cyt f and plastocyanin part of the
transport chain. The reported Eo = +0.44 volt for ferricyanide would
support this contention.

I should probably know this - but where in the photosynthetic
electron transport chain does ferricyanide act as an electron
acceptor? Thanks Carl
