Where Does Ferricyanide Accept Electrons?

Carl,
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
