Default Displaying Image in RSS Feed with Vb.Net

Hello Everyone and thanks for your help in advance. I am writing my first RSS feed and am encountering problems with creating an image link. I think I have the xml formatted correctly, yet, when I open the page in IE 7.0, no image or reference appears. Here is the xml I have generated:

  <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>

- <rss version="2.0">
- <channel>
  <title>DianaMcLaughlin.com - Official Website of Diana McLaughlin, M.D., M.B.A.</title>
  <link>http://www.dianamclaughlin.com/</link>

  <title>Photo of Diana McLaughlin, M.D., M.B.A.</title>
  <link>http://www.dianamclaughlin.com/Default.aspx?ArticleID=5</link>
  </image>
  <ttl>15</ttl>
  </item>
  </channel>
  </rss>
The actual page can be located at http://www.dianamclaughlin.com/rss.aspx

The code I am using to generate this is:

xtw.WriteStartElement("image")

            xtw.WriteStartElement("url")
            xtw.WriteString("http://www.dianamclaughlin.com/images/diana_staff_HighRes.jpg")
            xtw.WriteEndElement()


            'xtw.WriteString(Chr(60) & "img src=http://www.dianamclaughlin.com/images/diana_staff_HighRes.jpg /" & Chr(62))


            xtw.WriteStartElement("title")
            xtw.WriteString("Photo of Diana McLaughlin, M.D., M.B.A.")
            xtw.WriteEndElement()

            xtw.WriteStartElement("link")
            'xtw.WriteString(ArticleURL)
            xtw.WriteString("http://www.dianamclaughlin.com/images/diana_staff_HighRes.jpg")
            xtw.WriteEndElement()

            xtw.WriteEndElement()

Any help on this topic would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
