href="#top” is looking for an element with a tag of id="top" and there isn't one in the code you showed.

Here's a working demo:

P.S.

<img alt="A picture of me in Spain" src=images/spain.jpg>

Should have quotes around the src attribute:

<img alt="A picture of me in Spain" src="images/spain.jpg">
